By Karen Robes Meeks

San Pedro Bay stakeholders now have a chance to weigh in on the potential environmental impacts of a marine oil terminal operated by Shell Oil Company, which is seeking a new 30-year lease. The current lease expires in 2023.

The Port of Los Angeles has put together a Draft Environmental Impact Report for the terminal at Berths 167–169 in Wilmington, California.

Stakeholders will have until May 10 to comment on the draft report. Written comments can be sent to ceqacomments@portla.org or mailed to Port of Los Angeles, attention Chris Cannon, Director of Environmental Management, P.O. Box 151, San Pedro, CA 90733-0151.

The port will present its findings on April 11 at 6 p.m. at the Port of Los Angeles Administration Building, located at 425 S. Palos Verdes Street in San Pedro. There will be an opportunity for public comment at the meeting.
