ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Crowley Marine Services will enter the Bethel fuel market next year after completing agreements with Bethel Native Corp. for construction of a bulk-fuel tank farm.
The two companies said Tuesday that Crowley will build and run the tank farm on land leased from Bethel Native Corp.
The Bethel tank farm should open by September 2002, according to the companies.
The land lease will help offset declining revenue from Bethel Native's fish-processing plant, said chief executive Marc D. Stemp.
The village Native corporation also has investments in environmental remediation, food commodities, uniform and accessories management services, security services, and apartments and office buildings in Bethel, Anchorage and Albuquerque, N.M.
Crowley has operated in Alaska since 1953, the company said.
