Why are crude oil refineries situated on the coast?
Locating a refinery on the coast allows for easy access for oil tankers to bring oil to refineries. Inland refineries are forced to ship oil via pipelines. While pipelines are a more efficient method of shipping crude oil, a landlocked refinery cannot take advantage of spot cargos of discounted oil.
Asked in Lakes and Rivers
Where are the Green River and Bakken OIL reserves located?
There is an estimated 2 trillion barrels of oil buried beneath parts of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming in what is called the Green River Valley Reserve. The Bakken oil reserve has about 24 billion barrels of recoverable oil found within the Montana, North Dakota, and Saskatchewan areas. This reserve is currently being pumped and is responsible for the employment boom in North Dakota and Saskatchewan areas. A pipeline running from these areas to the refineries would greatly assist in the lowering of fuel costs.
