Damage at a Mississippi River barge dock is preventing Marathon Petroleum (MPC) from loading crude there, which could depress Canadian oil prices if repairs are lengthy. The dock's unloading arm was damaged when a barge it was filling with crude was struck by other vessels that became unmoored; one of the barges collided with a Kirby-owned (KEX) vessel, causing a spill into the river.

    Would the Keystone pipeline have helped prevent this disruption?

    The logistics in moving oil in this fashion expose much more environmemtal risk vs Pipelines. Not to mention costs and efficiency.
