Refinery on Lake Superior
Murphy Oil is meeting with Wisconsin environmental regulators and federal officials as it considers a six billion dollar refinery expansion. The El Dorado, Arkansas-based company is looking into what permits would be needed and what regulations it would face for expanding its operation along Lake Superior.
The possible expansion would boost refinery capacity from 35,000 to 235,000 barrels a day. The decision will involve the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The project at this point is too preliminary to even apply for regulatory permits.
