Vancouver Company Applies to Ship Coal on the Columbia River

Posted: Updated:

 

PENDLETON, OR - A company that plans to ship coal down the Columbia River has signed a letter of intent with Tidewater Barge Lines of Vancouver for transportation service.

The coal would travel 218 miles from the Port of Morrow at Boardman to a terminal at the Port of St. Helens at Clatskanie by tugs and barges. 

Ambre Energy has applied for permits from the Army Corps of Engineers, Oregon Department of State Lands and the Department of Environmental Quality.

The barge project is one of three proposals to ship coal from Montana and Wyoming to Asia.  The others would use trains to deliver coal to terminals at Longview and Cherry Point near Bellingham.
