The Calgary-based company has emerged as the middleman in a five-year deal between Phillips 66, the refining arm of ConocoPhillips Co., and Massachusetts-based logistics provider Global Partners LP to ship roughly 50,000 barrels of crude oil per day from North Dakota’s roaring Bakken oil field to a refinery in Linden, New Jersey.

We don't have railroad companies here in the U.S.? I thought we were supposed to be creating jobs here. Oh that's right, Obama won the election.

Canadian business ventures sure beat the heck out of our pro-business ventures here in U.S. Of course our so-called leader is either on vacation or out golfing all the time.

Pipelines when possible. Rail otherwise. Trucks for local deliveries.
