BENICIA — A proposal to deliver crude oil by train to a Benicia refinery was rejected unanimously by the city’s Planning Commission Thu night.

The proposal, by Texas-based Valero Energy, would allow for crude oil to be delivered to Benicia’s refinery from around North USA by rail.

The planning commission, moreover rejected the company’s request for approval of a use permit that would allow the refinery to transport up to 70,000 barrels of crude oil per day by rail, instead of the marine vessels currently in use. The refinery also gets crude oil via pipeline.

The commission also declined to approve the project’s environmental impact report.
