Tilbury Marine Jetty (Delta, BC)
WesPac Midstream–Vancouver LLC (WesPac), a wholly-owned subsidiary of WesPac Midstream LLC, is planning a new marine jetty in the Fraser River, adjacent to the existing FortisBC Tilbury LNG Plant on Tilbury Island, Delta, British Columbia. The jetty will allow loading of LNG onto barges and mid-sized ships for delivery to regional and offshore markets for use as fuel in communities that do not have access to natural gas via pipeline and for marine vessels. The marine jetty will be a single jetty structure providing one berth space for a barge or ship. These vessels would be of similar or smaller size to the vessels that currently transit the Fraser River today. Also, the jetty is similar in size to other structures in the Fraser River. It will be located on the site of a former marine terminal in previously dredged waters.
WesPac is currently conducting engineering and related shipping studies to prepare for First Nations and public consultation, as well as various applications to government agencies.
