Both have fuel issues and there is a NOTAM requesting airlines tanker fuel.

That has been in place for quite some time.  Not related strictly to the flooding.

Believe they had issues with fuel system in the summer at YVR and were "rationing" and asking airlines to tanker.

Thanks Kargokings


 Good link 👍

 Looks like the new fuel delivery system is not completed yet. I think YVR already has a pipeline to the refineries. Looks like when the airport was busy, the pipeline was supplemented by 70 truck loads a day. Interesting  that a new daily Asia flight would add another 80 truckloads of fuel a month. That's a lot of fuel and trucks.

 The new pipeline is 14 inches in diameter !
