Why would there be opposition to Marathon refinery expansion in southwest Detroit?
September 02, 2007
Marathon Oil Company is proposing to expand its refinery in southwest Detroit. The expansion would allow processing of 15,000 more barrels a day of crude oil from Canada. In an editorial this morning, the Detroit News says this adds about 630,000 gallons of a gas a day to the Michigan market.
The editorial encourages state and local officials to give the oil company all the tax breaks and incentives it needs to make it happen.
It also says that the company will invest $1 billion in the proposed expansion.
Who could be opposed to that?
