Murphy has announced the possible expansion and may file permit applications in late 2007 or early 2008. This expansion would result in a 670% increase in capacity and would involve filling approximately 400 acres of wetland. The company has said that it anticipates major increases in Canadian crude coming to the U.S. and emphasizes the need for U.S. refining growth. The Superior plant is already located at a major shipping hub off Enbridge's crude oil pipeline from Canada.
