CALGARY, Alberta, July 7 (Reuters) – The crude oil train
that derailed and exploded in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, on Saturday
was destined for Irving Oil Ltd’s refinery in Saint John, New
Brunswick, the company confirmed.

In a statement posted on its website on Sunday, Irving said

the owners of the crude, who were not named, had confirmed the
oil was being moved to the 300,000 barrel per day refinery,
Canada’s largest.

Irving, privately owned, increased its use of less
inexpensive inland crudes when the price of Brent crudes swelled
above the price of North American oil.
