Connecticut Supply

The state of Connecticut has tremendous advantages in its diverse supply of petroleum products. Our state is blessed with deep water terminals at New London, New Haven and Bridgeport whose terminal suppliers can call on refineries in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and the Gulf Coast via pipelines in order to secure domestic supplies. In addition, these terminal operators call on supply from Canada, Venezuela, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, Russia and Africa. Retail heating oil and motor fuels dealers also call on supply points in neighboring states. Providence, Rhode Island; Springfield, Massachusetts; Albany, New York; and New York Harbor all serve as points of supply for our state's petroleum needs. With more than half of our petroleum consumption derived from domestic sources, the majority of our refined product imports come Canada - the same source from which we receive the majority of our new natural gas supplies.
