More oil leaving Superior by rail

SUPERIOR, Wis. — It’s just a small piece of the North American oil bonanza pie, but Wisconsin’s only refinery quietly is moving more oil by rail.

In 2012, Calumet Superior LLC built a $10 million train-loading oil terminal across the street from its refinery on the south edge of Superior, adding 18,000 feet of new track.

Calumet now is loading about 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons) of oil per day by rail, said refinery manager Kollin Schade.
