LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) - A proposed $800 million oil refinery at the Port of Longview may meet the guidelines in Gov. Jay Inslee’s proposed Clean Fuels Standard, but the governor has yet to endorse the project.

The Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1Fu56a2 ) the governor’s office Tuesday said it was not sure if the Riverside Refining project would comply with the fuel standards. But spokesman Jaime Smith says the biofuels component of the project could be an opportunity.

The state released a draft Clean Fuel Standard which aimed at reducing pollution generated by vehicles over a 10-year period, but it hasn’t been made into law yet.

The Riverside project would refine 30,000 barrels of crude oil a day and would process 15,000 barrels of used cooking, seed and vegetable oils.
