It was willing to provide ships outfitted with oil-skimming booms, and it proposed a plan for building sand barriers to protect sensitive marshlands.

BP faces protest over oil sands development

We need to pay attention to this brewing issue at BP. Toledo is supposed to be one of the main, mainland processors of oil sand crude and if there already is shareholder concern, what will happen to the future of the refinery in Oregon especially after they spend lots of money to convert it to process oil sand crude? If the Oregon plant is converted and BP pulls out, will it be rendered useless and close down? We will have to watch this.

Toledo refinery to get 2.5 billion dollar re-tooling

From the Financial Post:
Plans for Sunrise call for a steam-assisted gravity drainage project, where steam is pumped into the earth to loosen up the tarry bitumen in the oil sands so it can be pumped to the surface in wells.

Husky and BP also co-own a refinery in Toledo, Ohio, which is targeted for US$2.5-billion of retooling work so it can run the oil sands-derived crude.

The view of Lake Erie that we deserve, but don't get!

WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) made the following
statement in response to Vice President Biden's visit to Perrysburg
earlier today.

"If the Obama administration truly wants to protect and create jobs, the
President and Congressional Democrats must stop their consideration of
the Cap and Trade legislation that will result in a massive national
energy tax on American businesses and families.

Under The Heritage Foundation's Manufacturing Vulnerability Index,
Ohio's Fifth District is the third most vulnerable district in the

American Energy Act

This week, House Republicans introduced the American Energy Act, an "all of the above" energy plan as an alternative to the Democrats misguided Cap and Trade (Tax) proposal that is currently under debate in the House of Representatives. The American Energy Act is based on three principles of increasing production of American-made energy, promoting alternative and renewable energy, and encouraging greater efficiency and conservation.

BP, Husky put oil sands plans on hold

Does not answer the question of how this will affect the Oregon refinery.
CALGARY -- British oil major BP PLC said it’s slowing down its oil sands plans with partner Husky Energy Inc. because it expects costs to deflate.

Andy Inglis, head of exploration and production at BP, said Tuesday a decision on whether to go ahead with the Sunrise project has been pushed back to 2010. The decision had been expected in late 2008.
“We will proceed or not proceed depending on its viability on the day,” he said.

BP and Huskey may scale back oil sands project - how will it affect the Oregon refinery?

UK supermajor BP and Canadian integrated Husky Energy may “scale back” their Sunrise oil sands project in Alberta as they seek to cut costs.

Husky boss John Lau earlier this week estimated development costs at $2.5 billion, compared with an agreement in 2007 to spend about $5.5 billion through 2015.

The partners have delayed a final investment decision on the project until next year on expectation of falling industry costs.

    Windfall tax lets Alaska rake in billions from Big Oil

    Republicans in Congress this June united to defeat a proposed windfall tax on oil companies, deriding it as a bad idea that would discourage investment in U.S. oil exploration.

    Things worked out far differently in the GOP stronghold of Alaska, a state whose economic fate is closely tied to the oil industry.
