Conoco attorney: 'They're in a bind'

ConocoPhillips' Billings oil refinery is "intertwined with the Idaho economy and the Montana economy," Conoco attorney Erik Stidham said as he wrapped up his legal arguments. "There's no assurance that they will not have to have an unplanned stop if they are not allowed to have these repairs done." If that were to happen, he said, it could be a $40 million impact; he said the oil company already has lost $2.5 million due to delays in moving the four megaloads. "They're in a bind right now," he said.
