The Port of Vancouver USA, founded in 1912, is deep-water port located in Vancouver, Washington along the Columbia River. The port contains five terminals along with the largest mobile harbor crane in North America which is typically used to unload wind energy equipment.

The Vancouver Energy project is a proposed crude oil transport hub in the Port of Vancouver. It has a tentative construction start date of December 2014 and estimated operation date of 2016. It is estimated, that this project would produce the equivalent of $1.6 billion in employment income during the terminal's construction and for its first 15 years of operation.[1]

Governance[edit]

The port is a government agency governed by three locally elected commissioners.
