Half Crude Oil Trains Bound For Refineries In Philadelphia Region

The Associated Press reported Sunday about half of the crude oil moved by rail in the United States is bound for refineries near Philadelphia; nearly 17 million barrels in January alone.

The Maritime Exchange for the Delaware River reported a 37 percent decline in oil tanker traffic since 2009.

Philadelphia Energy Solutions, the former Sunoco property in South Philadelphia, cut imports from 99 million barrels in 2009 to 40 million barrels last year, according to the EIA. Monroe Energy L.L.C., the Delta Air Lines subsidiary that acquired the former ConocoPhillips refinery in Trainer, cut imports from 59 million barrels in 2009 to 26 million last year.

Sunoco is expanding its Mariner East pipeline to deliver 345,000 barrels a day of propane, ethane, and butane to Marcus Hook by 2016's end. Most will be exported.
