December 2009 Vol. 236 No. 12

Ultramar Ltd., a subsidiary of Valero Energy Corp., says the Quebec government has adopted the decree authorizing its Pipeline Saint-Laurent project under the terms of the Environment Quality Act for 28 of the 32 municipalities located in the pipeline’s implementation corridor.

“This is a crucial step toward construction of a pipeline between our Lévis and Montreal East facilities,” said Louis Bergeron, director, Business Development and Terminal Management, at Ultramar and manager of the Pipeline Saint-Laurent project.”

The project will allow Ultramar to better secure its product deliveries into the Montreal region while providing uninterrupted supplies in winter.
