DCP Midstream is talking with Searsport, Maine, residents to convince them about the safety and economic benefits of its planned 137-foot-tall propane tank in the area. The plan should be allowed because the tank will be sited in an active port, which is an industrialized zone, said company spokeswoman Roz Elliott. "I operate seven facilities across the Northeast right now, and we've never had an incident in the history of this operation. It's how we approach operating, maintaining and just being there, doing the right things, being responsible operators," said DCP Midstream's asset director for Northeast propane operations, Jeff Hurteau.
