Marine Gas Oil System Modification

Irving Oil is proposing a marine gas oil system modification, located at the Halifax Harbour Terminal. The project would include the installation of a new Marine Gas Oil (MGO) pump including piping, air eliminator, electrical and instrumentation within the existing Lower Tank Farm MGO system. The second pump will provide redundancy for the existing MGO distribution system.
