We toured several oil and dry cargo port facilities in Portland, Maine, where we were warmly received by our host, John H. Henshaw, a Fletcher School alumnus and Executive Director of the Maine Port Authority. Portland is home to New England’s only major crude oil terminal, which since opening to tankers in 1941 has supplied over four billion barrels via pipeline to refineries in the Montreal area. While touring the facilities we heard first-hand accounts of a heated local debate around the proposed reversal of the Maine-Quebec pipeline, which in light of dwindling imports would transform Portland into an export outlet for Alberta tar sands crude oil. We left Portland deeply impressed by the terminal operators and staff, who were a model of professionalism and good humor.
