Phillips 66 signed a 5-year contract with Global Partners LP under which Global will use its rail loading, logistics, and transportation network to deliver crude oil from the Bakken formation 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 US refineries,” Phillips 66 said.
The take-or-pay contract calls for Phillips 66 to transport 91 million bbl of crude oil, or about 50,000 b/d, over the contract term. Cost was not disclosed.
The Bayway refinery at Linden, NJ, can process 237,500 b/cd. Global Partners is a transportation company.
