Expanded Great Lakes Refineries To Be Fed By Massive New Pipelines

Expansion of refineries in the Great Lakes region at Superior, WI, Whiting, IN and near Detroit to process and ship Canadian tar sand oil will be linked to billions of dollars in new pipelines crisscrossing both countries, as shown here.

The exploitation of Canadian tar sand oil, itself demanding huge expenditures of water and energy, will have an impact on the North American continent, and on the atmosphere's quality, for decades.

Most of these are expansions of pipelines that already have been in place for decades and already feed Murphy Oil's Superior refinery.
