Staten Island Advance: The BEC is situated on 7.9 acres along about 290 feet of frontage on the Kill Van Kull, and the additional water frontage is expected to benefit IMTT by enabling Macquarie to expand the storage company’s docks, the release stated.

In addition, Macquarie plans to build a 7,000-foot-long pipeline across IMTT land that would provide the BEC with additional access to natural gas and facilitate the development of gas-using businesses. Read more from the Staten Island Advance here…
