Comment period extended on crude oil facility

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — State regulators have again extended the public comment period for a fuel shipping company's plan to expand crude oil handling operations at the Port of Albany.

The Department of Environmental Conservation says Monday that the comment period on Global Companies' air permit application has been extended an additional 60 days until Nov. 30 because of broad public interest.

Waltham, Massachusetts-based Global wants to add heating facilities at its Albany terminal so it can handle thick, tar-like crude oil of the sort that's being mined in western Canada.

Global and another company, Buckeye Partners, have vastly expanded their Port of Albany operations to handle crude oil shipped by train from North Dakota's Bakken Shale region. Albany has become a key hub for western crude heading for East Coast refineries.
