The Cogeneration Project would be located in Whatcom County, Washington,
approximately 2 miles east of Cherry Point along the Strait of Georgia, adjacent to the BP
Cherry Point Refinery (the Refinery). The proposed facility would be located entirely on
BP-owned property. The Refinery and surrounding properties owned by BP are zoned
Heavy Impact Industrial and Light Industrial and are contained within the Cherry Point
Major Industrial Urban Grown Area/Port Industrial Zone of the Whatcom County
Comprehensive Plan issued May 20,1997. .
A 230 kV BPA transmission line, which would be used to export power from the
Cogeneration Project runs in a north-south direction 0.8 miles east of the Project site.
The connecting transmission line would be located entirely on land zoned Heavy Impact
Industrial on BP owned property.
The Cogeneration Project presents very different site restoration issues than most
EFSEC projects. In most instances, EFSEC has considered stand-alone energy
generation facilities being proposed by special purpose corporations with limited assets.
EFSEC has, therefore, asked applicants and certificate holders to provide for site
restoration in the event that the limited purpose corporation went bankrupt and the
facility needed to be demolished and site restored. The Cogeneration Project is
fundamentally different. BP West Coast
