Even without the Keystone Pipeline, the petroleum industry will find a way to continue. Although oil train 65R is extremely close to BP’s Whiting Refinery, parts of which can be seen in on the upper left & right of this photo, I’m sure this refinery is not its ultimate destination. The 413K barrel per day refinery recently restarted as part of a $4 billion rebuild for processing Canadian Crude Tar Sands Oil and has existing pipelines in place that feed the refinery all the way from Alberta Canada. About the only product BP Whiting ships by rail is hot asphalt. Trains, such as this one, carry the oil from the new fracking processes to other eastern refineries.
