BP Cherry Point plans $388M project, bringing hundreds of jobs to Whatcom County

(Bellingham Herald) – BP Cherry Point is ready to undertake a major project that won’t result in increased production, but it will mean quite a bit to the local economy. Next month the oil refinery begins work installing hydrogen diesel units that will help the company meet stricter air quality laws. Once in place, the last of the diesel currently allowed to be sold at higher sulfur levels will be converted into ultra-low-sulfur diesel. The project, scheduled to be completed at the end of 2012, is estimated to cost the company $388 million, considered one of the most expensive single investments a private sector company has made in Whatcom County.  You can read the entire article on the Bellingham Herald Site by clicking here.
