With no expansion, Superior refinery doesn't need new oil source
While the new Alberta Clipper pipeline technically ends in Superior, the Murphy Oil refinery there doesn't need and really can't use any of the new oil moving south from Canada.
Dave Podratz, Superior refinery manager for Murphy Oil USA, said existing pipelines bring his refinery enough oil.
"It won't affect us at all. We won't be using any of that capacity,'' Podratz said.
