Suncor (SU) is crying foul over transportation fees proposed by Kinder Morgan (KMP, KMI) for the expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline, contending the latter is leveraging its position as the owner of the only Pacific outlet for Alberta’s landlocked oil to ratchet up tolls “to earn excessive and unreasonable rates of return.” Of the 13 firms contracted for capacity, only SU and Total (TOT) have formally complained.

  • When the NDP win the up-coming B.C. election, KM can kiss the TM pipeline expansion goodbye. That won't help SU but it might make them feel better!!
