What is Koch Alberta crude?

Central Alberta (aka Koch Alberta) is a light sour conventional crude gathered on the Interpipeline system roughly in a straight line from south to north between Drumheller and Edmonton, Alberta. A large proportion of the CAL production is blended into Medium Sour Blend (MSB) at Edmonton, and smaller volumes travel to the west coast in blended and segregated batches.
