    Here's the money quote:

    Same articleThe call was sponsored by the American Petroleum Institute and Jones was joined on the call by API President and CEO Jack Gerard.


    I"m sure API hosts tons of calls with independent researchers and policy wonks to chat about random pipelines that they have no financial interest in. icon_lol.gif

    Canada should build a refinery next to their tar sands and be done with it. Tar sands need different processing that deepwell crude oil, and a purpose built facility would be more efficient in every way imaginable. If the free market was so damn smart it would figure out the most efficient way to profit from resources.

    Correct, but how many years or decades for the permitting process to build?

    Significantly less years than the supply of tar sands available to feed into it
