Genesis Energy is partnering with Southern Pacific Resource Corporation to supply Gulf Coast oil refineries with dilbit, a refinery feedstock. The product will originate in Canada and arrive at the Genesis Natchez port terminal by rail, providing much needed stimulus to the rail line serving the Port of Natchez. Additionally, the companies expect the rail cars to carry materials back to Canada for Canadian oil sands production. The Mississippi Development Authority worked closely with Genesis to support the expansion, which will create 20 jobs in the area.
