First Imperial Oil loads to arrive in Lewiston Thursday!

The first of the Imperial Oil boatload is destined to arrive at the Port of Lewiston tomorrow. This load will contain the first eight modules to be transported by Imperial Oil to the Alberta Tar Sands. This, all before the Idaho Supreme court has had a chance to make a ruling on the Conoco/Phillips shipments, a ruling that will certainly impact future oil companies’, including Imperial’s, chance to drive the Highway 12 gauntlet.

The shipment was brought up the river from the Port of Vancouver, WA. a two and a half day trip. The modules will be off-loaded under the watchful eyes of a hired security squad who will erect a perimeter around the port to keep out pesky Idaho residents and other interested parties.

If the trucks are going to move, however, is still dependent on the ruling from the Idaho courts.
