Global Partners is committed to working with the community and regulators to continue to meet all environmental standards at our Albany terminal. In 2013, we filed a request to modify that facility’s air permit.
We are withdrawing that request and plan to resubmit a renewal application with modifications later this year. The changes to the permit will include a reduction in the amount of crude oil handled through the terminal and will not include a system for the heating of crude oil. We look forward to working collaboratively with the community and the DEC as the process moves forward.
At Global Partners, our mission is to provide the energy that people rely on to heat homes and drive vehicles, and to operate our facilities in a safe and environmentally sound manner. We welcome input that will help achieve these goals.
