If we thought my earlier post U.S. giving away ownership and control of our Energy and refineries August 6, 2014 where I listed just some of the refineries and energy resources we were giving away had ended, the headline I caught yesterday that no, we are determined to destroy our energy independence at any cost apparently. From China to Russia, we are allowing the take over of resource rich tens of thousands of acres. So we are shutting down our coal companies, and giving away our refineries. What fool Nation allows this? So much for energy independence. Check out the list so far Here
This time it is an “in the weeds” story of how a breakup has left the Saudis with our largest refinery. And they are not done. Saudi Aramco to target US refiners, chemical plants after Shell breakup CNBC. Ed: The intention? They are hurting with the price of gas now in the cellar. What a nice way to try to control prices.
The two companies signed a nonbinding letter of intent, a plan that would divide up Motiva’s refineries between them. The refineries have a combined capacity of 1.1 million barrels per day and are all located close to each other. The breakup will allow Saudi Aramco to take over the Port Arthur refinery and 26 distribution terminals, and Aramco will also hold onto the Motiva brand name. Shell will take over the other two refineries, Convent and Norco, both located in Louisiana. Shell said that it would operate the two refineries as one plant with a combined throughput of 500,000 barrels per day.
