Oil Spill Drill Off Duluth: Training For Murphy Oil Expansion?

The good folks up on Lake Superior are running oil spill cleanup drills off Duluth - - just a few skips of a stone from the Murphy Oil refinery, where a six-fold expansion could begin soon if the oil company finds an investor who can help finance the plan.

Are these two circumstances related - - practicing the clean-up of an oil spill on Lake Superior, and a planned expansion of the big refinery there on the Big Lake?

Well, it turns out the drill is an annual one.

Let's hope we never need to find out how well the training actually went.
