Tesoro-Savage Joint Venture (TSJV), a joint venture between Tesoro Corporation (TES) and Savage Companies (SC) is planning to undertake the oil-by-rail terminal in Vancouver, Washington, the US.

The project involves the construction of a new crude oil loading and rail unloading facility with an initially capacity of 120,000 barrels per day (bpd) with near-term expansion to 280,000 bpd; however, the permit will allow for up to 360,000 bpd.

It includes the construction of a storage facility, a loading facility, an unloading facility, access roads and other related infrastructure.

Savage will be responsible for oversee and manage the design, construction and operation of the facility on the joint venture’s behalf. The facility will exist on three parcels, including an off-loading facility by the port's loop rail track at Terminal 5, and a marine facility at Terminal 4.

In April 2013, Tesoro-Savage has submitted an application to planning authority.
