Proposed Oil Refinery In Longview, Washington

A company out of Texas called Waterside Energy has proposed what would be the West Coast’s first refinery in more than 25 years at the Port of Longview on the lower Columbia River. Waterside's plan calls for a facility capable of refining 30,000 barrels of oil and 15,000 barrels of biofuel each day. The proposed project would also include a propane and butane terminal handling 75,000 barrels per day.
