New York's Albany County sets moratorium on crude oil processing

NEW YORK, March 12 (Reuters) - New York’s Albany County on Wednesday issued a moratorium on the expansion of crude oil processing in the Port of Albany, pending a public health investigation by the Albany County Health Department.

The moratorium would impact an oil-processing expansion project by Global Partners LP, Albany County said in a press release.

The concerns about oil processing were driven in part because the project expansion would increase the use of transporting crude oil by rail to the port.
