Phillips 66 to Ship Bakken Oil to Refinery by Rail

Phillips 66 has announced that it has signed a five-year contract with Global Partners LP under which Global will use its rail transloading, logistics and transportation system to deliver crude oil from the Bakken region of North Dakota to the Phillips 66 Bayway refinery in New Jersey.  This is one of several commitments to transportation infrastructure Phillips 66 has made that tie directly to its strategy of delivering advantaged crude oil to the company’s U.S. refineries.
The terms of the contract include a take-or-pay commitment from Phillips 66 to receive approximately 91 million barrels of crude oil over the contract term, which equates to approximately 50,000 barrels per day. 
The contract will utilize Global’s network of loading facilities and offloading terminals.  Phillips 66 is one of the first energy companies to move shale crude to the East Coast.  Last year, the company expanded its capability to deliver shale crude to its refineries by truck, rail, barge, ocean going vessels, and pipeline.
