G3 Investors Explore Feasibility of a New Export Grain Terminal on Canada's West Coast

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, June 2, 2015 /CNW/ -- G3 Global Holdings, a limited partnership between Bunge Canada and SALIC Canada, announced that it has formed a joint venture with Western Stevedoring Company Limited to examine the feasibility of building an export grain terminal at Lynnterm West Gate at Port Metro Vancouver.

Bunge Canada and SALIC Canada also formed G3 Global Grain Group, which was named the successful investor in CWB in April 2015.

"The G3 vision is to create a highly efficient coast-to-coast Canadian grain enterprise that provides stronger market access solutions for growers and delivers value to our stakeholders," says Karl Gerrand, CEO, G3. "The planned combination of CWB and Bunge's Canadian Grain assets will provide a highly competitive eastern footprint. We now are looking west to determine whether this is the right time and location to take the next step."

A number of matters need to be resolved and permitting considered before a decision to move forward with the project is made. Gerrand added, "Together with Western Stevedoring, we are pursuing related discussions as we move through feasibility and permitting processes. We believe an open relationship with First Nations and the community is critical to the long-term success of the project."

The joint venture will make an announcement at the appropriate time if it decides to move forward with the project.
