Weaver's Cove Energy Site

The former Weaver’s Cove Energy site is located along the east bank of the Taunton River at 1 New Street in Fall River, MA. The property was the former site of Weaver’s Cove Energy, and prior to that a Shell Oil Company petroleum distribution facility. The bulk oil terminal is currently vacant and the property is largely unused, and there is an active subsurface petroleum remediation system on site.

Located approximately 2.25 miles (3.6 km) from Interstate 195, the 68.5-acre (27.7 hectare) site includes a former bulk fuel storage and distribution facility on the waterfront in Fall River. The site is located on the Taunton River approximately 39 nautical miles (73 km) from the leading edge of the offshore wind energy areas located south of Martha’s Vineyard.  The property is accessible by road, deep-water channel in the Taunton River, and by commercial railroad running adjacent to the property. There is a pier system with a dolphin mooring supports, which were previously used to allow fuel vessels to offload fuel to the site.
