Today’s Providence Journal features a story on the large number of Rhode Island households that depend on home heating oil to stay warm during cold winters like the one we are currently experiencing. The vast majority of heating oil is supplied via tanker ships to terminals in the Port of Providence including Sprague Energy, Capital Terminal, and New England Petroleum. These terminals then supply a network of home heating oil distributors who deliver the product to homes across the state and wider region.

This is all made possible by our 40ft  deep-water shipping channel and industrial zoning to protect the port’s terminals.

Another example of the role Providence’s working waterfront plays in powering our economy and providing the region with critical energy resources.
