The first ship has arrived at Pembina's new propane export terminal on Watson Island in Prince Rupert.

The news came from a Facebook post by Prince Rupert mayor Lee Brain.

Brain described the development as "massively good news for the community" and said that revenues generated from the export terminal will be used to build infrastructure, repair roads and sidewalks, ease taxes and invest in the downtown and waterfronts. 

The terminal will move propane from rail cars onto ships headed for foreign markets.
