The huge boom in U.S. Oil production, specifically the “Bakken Play” in North Dakota, based on shale oil “fracking”, is driving the push for a Lake Superior oil terminal. In fact, as noted in an earlier article on Infosuperior, Calument LLC is examining the potential for an oil terminal at Superior, Wisconsin. The distance from North Dakota to Superior, Wisconsin is approximately 225 miles. This terminal would provide the ability to move oil across Lake Superior and the entire Great Lakes system.
