Valero Energy Corporation Research Report
On May 29, 2013, Reuters reported that independent U.S. refiner Valero Energy Corporation (Valero) intends to spend up to $190 million to enable its Quebec refinery to use cheaper Western Canadian crude rather than relying on pricier imports. Valero will build a rail off-loading facility at its 265,000-barrel per day Jean Gaulin refinery in Levis, Quebec, and expand the terminal at its Montreal East facility, in anticipation of the proposed reversal of Enbridge Inc.'s Line 9 pipeline connecting Ontario and Quebec. A reversed Line 9 would transport up to 300,000 bpd, and ship western Canadian crude eastward rather than transporting more expensive Brent crude oil from the North Sea, West Africa and the Middle East in a westbound direction.
