In addition to delivering more crude oil to U.S. refineries, railroads are shipping U.S. crude oil to eastern Canadian refineries. While the Midwest has been the traditional source for U.S. crude oil exports to Canada, a recent increase in exports is being led by deliveries from the Gulf Coast (waterborne) and the East Coast. The exports from the East Coast are primarily barrels that moved east from North Dakota's Bakken region by rail and are then exported through New York state. Small amounts of Canadian crude are also starting to move by rail to U.S. refineries, with 2011 marking the first time in 10 years that foreign-sourced rail shipments were reported. At nearly 1,000 barrels per day (bbl/d), this was the highest volume of foreign oil-by-rail recorded since EIA started publishing these data in 1981. In 2012 that number set a new record of more than 11,000 bbl/d.
