The BP Cherry Point Cogeneration Project will consist of three natural gas-fired combustion turbine generators with heat recovery steam generators, steam turbine generator, and associated equipment, buildings and structures. The Facility could have a gross nominal generation capacity of 738 megawatts (MW). Approximately 18 MW will be consumed on site, and 85 MW would be supplied to the BP West Coast Products LLC Refinery located near Blaine, Washington (location map).
The Governor approved the BP Cherry Point Cogeneration Project Site Certification Agreement in December 2004. Development of the project may be phased with construction of two (520-570 MW) of the three combustion turbines during the 1st phase and the third combustion turbine during the 2nd phase.
There are no immediate plans to begin construction of the project.
