Port of Vancouver provides notice to Vancouver Energy: Project approvals required by March 31

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

The Port of Vancouver USA Board of Commissioners voted 3-0 to provide notice to Vancouver Energy that its project must receive the necessary licenses, permits and approvals required to operate by March 31, 2018, or the lease will be terminated, per the lease amendment approved by the board in April 2016.

Licenses, permits and approvals is one of the conditions precedent on which the lease was extended in April 2016. Since then the lease has extended automatically every three months.

Today’s vote came after Commission President Eric LaBrant made a motion to direct CEO Julianna Marler to provide notice that the port elects to negate and nullify the next extension period such that the Conditions Precedent Outside Date (CPOD) remains March 31, 2018. The CPOD is the date by which both parties must be satisfied that conditions such as permits and environmental baseline work are met.

The project has been under review by EFSEC since August 2013. On Dec. 19, 2017, the Council issued a recommendation to Gov. Jay Inslee to disapprove the project. Under the EFSEC process, the Governor has final say over approval of energy projects.
