Owner of Vermont Oil Pipeline Seeks Ruling Re-Do
The owner of a crude oil pipeline that runs between Maine and Montreal is asking Vermont environmental regulators to reconsider a ruling that would require a new review under the state's land use law if the company seeks to move Canadian tar sands oil in the pipeline.
Last month, Vermont's District 7 Environmental Commission determined the Portland Pipeline Corp. would need a new Act 250 land-use permit if it proposes to move Canadian tar sands oil through an existing pipeline between Montreal and Portland.
The decision said changing the use of the pipeline would represent a significant change to the existing pipeline and so warrant a new review.
