Vancouver Energy and Analysis Group Release Economic Findings

Vancouver Energy projected to generate $2 billion in local economic value

VANCOUVER, Wash., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, independently conducted economic impact assessment from Analysis Group shows the proposed Vancouver Energy terminal will deliver significant economic benefit to the region, generating $2 billion in economic value and creating an average of more than 1,000 jobs annually.  

"Analysis Group's findings confirm our previous analysis. Vancouver Energy will have a major, positive economic impact on Vancouver and the region through the creation of an average of more than 1,000 jobs annually and billions of dollars in economic value added for the city, region and state of Washington," said Jared Larrabee, Vancouver Energy general manager. "In a recent poll, 69 percent of Clark County respondents and 64 percent of respondents statewide expressed support for the Vancouver Energy terminal, largely because of its potential economic benefits and contribution to U.S. energy independence efforts in an uncertain world. This latest assessment confirms they're right. We remain committed to improving the local and state economy, and we remain committed to operating safely and promoting our nation's energy independence while doing so."

The projected economic impacts identified in the assessment include:

  • $2 billion in economic value to the local and regional economy ($1.2 billion present value) through labor income and tax revenues, as well as income and profits created as a result of the terminal's direct, indirect and induced impacts
  • $1.6 billion in labor income ($890 million present value) during its construction and assumed first 15 years of operation
  • $22 million, one-time payment in state and local taxes during construction
  • $7.8 million in tax revenue annually once fully operational

Additionally, the terminal is expected to bring much-needed, high-value jobs to the region, including:

  • 320 full-time or equivalent jobs during construction
  • 176 direct, on-site jobs and 440 direct, off-site jobs once the terminal is fully operational

Additional indirect and induced jobs will be created by suppliers to the project and by subsequent rounds of spending in the region, bringing the total average number of jobs created by the project to over 1,000 jobs annually.

The economic impact assessment was conducted using best practices and proven methodologies by Dr. Todd Schatzki, Analysis Group Vice President, and Dr. Bruce Strombom, Analysis Group Managing Principal, who combine extensive experience in economic impact studies and energy and environmental analysis. Though commissioned by Tesoro Savage Petroleum Terminal LLC, the opinions expressed in the independent assessment are exclusively those of the authors.

"Our analysis finds that the development of Vancouver Energy would lead to increases in employment, labor income and tax revenues. These reflect the direct employment and local business activity from Vancouver Energy's construction and operation, as well as the multiplier effects as activity ripples through the region's economy," said Dr. Strombom.

The assessment is one of many studies that have been or will be provided to the Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) – the body in charge of reviewing and permitting large, energy-related projects in Washington – as part of the preliminary draft environmental impact statement. Once EFSEC completes its thorough review process, it will make a recommendation to Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who will make the final decision on permitting the terminal.

Assessment Methodology
Analysis Group's "Assessment of Vancouver Energy Socioeconomic Impacts: Primary Economic Impacts" focuses on four metrics from the IMPLAN model that measure the impacts on a region's economy: employment, labor income, tax revenue and total economic value added. IMPLAN was used to gauge the economic impact of Vancouver Energy on the city of Vancouver and the 10 counties within a one-hour drive from the proposed terminal's location. Timing included Phase I of construction in year one; Phase II of construction to bring the facility to full capacity and start-up operations in year two; and the next 14 years during which the facility is fully operational.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
