First Exxon loads arriving from Korea

The first shipments of oil field equipment for Imperial Oil/ExxonMobil's Kearl oil sands project in Canada will arrive at the Port of Vancouver from Korea on Monday, the Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Wash. reports; those are the mega-loads that ExxonMobil hopes to truck through Idaho along scenic U.S. Highway 12 from the Port of Lewiston, then through Montana and up to Canada, starting in November and lasting for a year, though the company doesn't have permits yet from either Idaho or Montana. You can read the Columbian's report here. The Port of Vancouver is expecting to make $1 million from having the oversized loads pass through its port.
