City Inside/Out: Port Politics

City Inside/Out: Port Politics

Poll question: Do you support the Port of Seattle's decision to lease one of its terminals as a homeport for a Shell Arctic oil-drilling fleet?

A controversy over Arctic oil drilling is making some big waves at the Port of Seattle. Shell Oil has inked a two-year deal to lease Terminal 5 for its oil exploration vessels. Environmental groups filed a lawsuit and say the port should have conducted an environmental review before granting the lease. Meanwhile, the city of Seattle is reviewing the terminal's shoreline permit. Supporters say the Shell contract will create more than 200 jobs and provide some revenue while the empty terminal undergoes upgrades. Is this a done deal? The global energy debate comes to our waterfront.
