You mean you guys didn't know that it's called TarSand, not oil.
It's an oil sand - bitumen. It is processed in Canada into oil then shipped to market. Tar wouldn't flow in a pipeline.
eople don't know shite about this project. It takes an incredible amount of energy to turn the tar into usable oil.
It is an expensive process and should prices fall, the project will become uneconomic. Right now the process produces more energy than is consumed....companies wouldn't be producing it otherwise.
Also, we won't be using this oil, we will export it. It is such low grade shite we wouldn't put it in our cars.
First some will be exported after refining some prior. The main issue is WTI prices, there's too much oil in Cushing and that's why the leg from OK to TX is being built now (doesn't need St Dept approval)....if you get to the coast you can get Brent pricing which is currently about +10.
You should stop posting on a subject when you are as ignorant as you are and you really shouldn't refer to people as ignorant rednecks when, again, you are the most ignorant posting on the subject.
