Gov. Cuomo provides an update on gas shortage

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that over 8 million gallons of gasoline and other petroleum products are available and over 28 million gallons are being delivered to operating New York terminals. Millions of gallons have arrived in New York Harbor for delivery to terminals and Gov. Cuomo provided other updates on progress that is underway to address the fuel shortage in the metro area. 

"The shortage of gasoline in the New York-metro area has caused major inconveniences for our residents, and the state must take every action possible to address this issue," Governor Cuomo said. "Although there is much work to be done, I have directed the state to temporarily suspend gasoline distribution related requirements so gasoline and other fuels can be transported throughout the region and New Yorkers can return to life as normal as quickly as possible." 

The following is the current operational status of regional fuel terminal and delivery facilities: 

Pipelines 

Buckeye Pipeline: Power has been restored to the Linden, New Jersey hub, from which the Buckeye Pipeline can deliver up to 8.5 million gallons per day to New York terminals. The pipeline is operational. The Inwood, New York and Long Island City terminals that receive product from this pipeline are operational.  

Colonial Pipeline: Working on generator power; Limited deliveries to Linden facility.

 

Long Island 

Inwood - Global Terminal (gasoline and distillates): The facility is open and can accept barge and pipeline deliveries. It opened last night with approximately 1.7 million gallons unleaded; 350,000 gallons premium; 700,000 gallons of ULS diesel on site.  

Inwood - CARBO (gasoline and distillates): The facility is open and can accept barge deliveries. 

Northville Terminal at Port Jefferson (gasoline and distillates): Northville opened yesterday with 2.4 million gallons of diesel on site. A barge arrived at midnight this morning with 1 million gallons of gasoline. A barge from Hess Port Reading is expected to arrive today with 1 million gallons gasoline. Other scheduled deliveries include:

· November 4: 1.5 million gallons gasoline

· November 5: 1.5 million gallons gasoline

· November 6: 4 million gallons of gasoline and 5.3 million gallons of diesel

Hudson Valley 

Newburgh Global Terminal (gasoline and distillates): The terminal is open to barge deliveries, and a barge was there yesterday, unloading 2.7 million gallons and refueling trucks at same time.

 

The Governor has also implemented a series of actions designed to increase fuel supplies in the hurricane-affected areas. 

On Friday, Governor Cuomo signed an Executive Order to allow distributors and transporters to bring gasoline, diesel, and kerosene into New York State without having to meet the usual registration requirements. By law, transporters and distributors must be registered with the State Department of Taxation and Finance. The Governor's Executive Order temporarily suspended those registration requirements.

 Saturday, the Governor signed an Executive Order to temporarily ease restrictions on vapor pressure requirements for gasoline and waive the ultra-low sulfur diesel requirement for home-heating oil. At the Governor's direction, the state has also obtained a waiver from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on vapor recovery requirements so gasoline can be transported from petroleum terminals without power to gas stations in hurricane-affected areas.
