The Octopus: North American Crude-by-Rail Projects from BNSF

I recently came across this brochure from the railroad company BNSF about all the wonderful crude-by-rail facilities it connects to and how BNSF is doing their small part to destroy the planet.

"In development" crude-by-rail facilities

Here are the facilities that BNSF lists as "in development", including the proposed WesPac project in Pittsburg, CA. This is not a complete list, because there may be others not served by BNSF, and we also know of the proposed crude-by-rail project at Valero's refinery in Benicia.
