Hyperion Refinery Will Have Double the GHG Emissions, and Now It’s for Tar Sands

Over on our Great Plains Tar Sands Pipelines blog, news about the proposed Hyperion Refinery at Elk Point, SD, near Plains Justice’s Vermillion office. Previous greenhouse gas emissions projections were apparently way off due to some forgotten cokers, and now the Sioux Falls Argus Leader and Sioux City Journal casually mention that the refinery is intended to process 400,000 barrels of Canadian tar sands crude per day. Does anybody else remember when Hyperion refining was vehemently denying that the refinery had anything to do with the tar sands pipeline running past it? Those were the good old days.

Plains Justice is providing legal representation to landowners and affected residents along the proposed Keystone XL pipeline route, producing reports on pipeline safety and emergency response planning, drafting comments on government studies, and bringing public attention to expanding tar sands infrastructure across the Great Plains. Our website has more information.
