Three vessels carrying Canadian propane destined for international markets departed from AltaGas’ Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal on April 11, 2020, beating a previous record by 50%, according to CN. CN exclusively serves the facilities at the Port of Prince Rupert, which is where the AltaGas Ridley Terminal is located. The terminal has moved over 1 million metric tonnes of propane since it launched in May 2019. The increase in propane export volumes comes amid ongoing capacity expansions to grow propane export volumes out of British Columbia. Usually two vessels leave the Port of Prince Rupert monthly with propane, but this week, it was three vessels, according to CN.
