SUPERIOR (AP) -- A proposed oil shipping terminal on Lake Superior has been put on hold.
Wisconsin Public Radio reported oil tankers won't be sailing from western Lake Superior to the East Coast for now.
The proposed terminal would ship crude from the Bakeen oil fields in North Dakota. Superior Calumet Refinery manager Kollin Schade says the size and cost of an oil terminal means his company needs a refinery on the east coast as a partner.
Schade says nobody has stepped forward with a long-term commitment to make it feasible.
Duluth Port Director Adolph Ojard says he is not surprised. He says it's more efficient to move it by rail and pipeline.
