"WASHINGTON, D.C. - Reliance Petroleum Ltd. (RPL) of India will build a $6 billion state-of-the-art oil refinery and petrochemical complex in Jamnagar Gujarat, India, using U.S. equipment, technology and services financed by a $500 million loan guarantee from the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank)."

"Bechtel Corp., Houston, Tex., is providing design, procurement, project management and other services. Major U.S. exporters also participating in the project include: Black & Veatch International Co., Kansas City, Mo., for sulfur recovery and gas treatment units; Dow Global Technologies, Inc., Midland, Mich., for licensing and services for the polypropylene plant process; Foster Wheeler Corp., Clinton, N.J., for fired heaters for the refinery's coker; and UOP LLC, Des Plaines, Ill., for the catalytic converter reactor section and PSA (Pressure Swing Absorption) packages. Citibank N.A., New York, N.Y., is the guaranteed lender on the transaction."

Not only are we going to be paying more for our fuel, we are helping other countries build these new refineries, and sending them our technology and sending jobs overseas that would be here if we were the ones to be building a new plant in the USA...

That was the point of my posts.
We refuse to drill or build any new refineries here, yet we supply technology and send those jobs to india to help them build the worlds largest that we will be buying our gas from.
Makes perfect sense to me...

We should be building them right on the border between the US and MX. On the Mex side of coarse, we wouldn't want to upset the eco-balance here.

Then we could give the EPA the 1 fingered salute.
