Shippagan DFO-SCH New Fuel Storage and Dispensory System Installation

The Shippagan DFO-RPSS requires the installation of a new fuel storage and dispensing system for continued safe fuelling for harbour operations. The proposed new system will have a storage capacity of 18,500 litres. The system will be installed on previously disturbed (developed) land.

The proposed activities are expected to take place between August 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023. Project commencement is subject to DFO-RPSS operational priorities and funding, as well as the receipt of other regulatory approval processes, which could delay the completion of the project to March 2027.
