Improving Oil Flow to California Refineries by Rail

“California, the third-biggest refining state in the U.S., is about to see a flood of oil by rail from places such as Canada and North Dakota as suppliers seek to tap a market isolated from the rest of the country,” reports Lynn Doan for Bloomberg.

“The Western U.S. may bring 500,000 barrels of light oil by rail a day in 2015 as the region’s refiners seek to replace shrinking output in California and Alaska and more costly foreign imports” and “California refineries can run 1.63 million barrels a day, the most in the U.S. after Texas and Louisiana.”

Companies such as Alon USA Energy Inc. and Valero Energy Corp. “are looking to tap the market with projects that would bring more crude into the West by rail.”
