Global Partners is moving ahead with the process of renewing our air permit for our Albany Terminal. As part of the permit renewal modification, we are proposing some changes in the way the terminal is operated.
These changes have been influenced by what we have heard from the community previously. They include a proposed decrease of more than 75% in the amount of crude oil allowed to be shipped through the terminal. Learn more about the permit renewal modification here.
A permit renewal modification will be submitted to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) in March 2020. However, the public process with opportunities for further input begins now.
We are hosting an Open House on February 25, 2020 so you can learn more, ask questions, and share your views. We hope to see you there.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 25 6:00pm – 8:00pm
WHERE: Ezra Prentice Homes Community Room 625 South Pearl Street Albany, NY 12202

With colder temperatures fast-approaching, Global Partners has once again donated 1,500 gallons of home heating oil to the Cornell Cooperative Extension (Albany County) to assist local residents in need. Global has donated home heating oil to the Albany area every year since 2009.
Part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s mission is putting knowledge to work in pursuit of social well-being for New York State families and communities.
Helping local area residents keep warm in the winter months is a cause of great importance to Global. For the upcoming winter season, Global has pledged an overall total of more than 20,000 gallons of home heating oil to the various communities it serves.

Global Partners has a long history of supporting local communities, and this time employees are helping, too.
“Global has a long and rich history based around family,” said Global Partners President and CEO Eric Slifka. “While we have grown and evolved tremendously, I believe that our roots have remained central to our culture. Seeing families all over southeast Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey without a place to stay, food to eat, or clothes on their back hits close to home.”
To contribute the relief efforts for Harvey victims, Global is holding a fundraising campaign with proceeds that will directly benefit the Houston Food Bank. Global will also match all employee contributions up to $15,000.
The Houston Food Bank is an organization that provides ongoing support to the southeast Texas community by providing food to those who need it.
“With the recent devastation brought on by Hurricane Harvey, more people than ever will need help feeding their families while struggling over the next several months to rebuild their lives,” said Slifka.
You can also contribute to the Houston Food Bank through their website. »
