Construction of an island at the Port of Los Angeles for a giant oil storage facility could begin within two to three months, according to Long Beach-based Pacific Texas Pipeline Co. President Cecil Owens made the prediction after the state Coastal Commission approved the construction of a 106-acre landfill island in the port's outer harbor where the terminal will be located.
