The trip from Quebec City or St. John to China isn't really that much longer than the trip from Houston to China.  Kitimat to China is of course shorter but it's not clear how that pipeline is ever going to happen over the opposition of the BC government.

For shits & Giggles let us look.  ;D

Scenario #1
If a transporter were to leave from ST. Johns and by way of Panama canal to the port of Zhenjiang, China
Miles = 11,433

Scenario #2
If a transporter were to leave from ST. Johns and by way of Horn of Africa to the port of Zhenjiang, China
Miles = 13,960

Now take Fort McMurray. heart of Tar sand oil. Pipeline transport by put on hold project, Northern Gateway. A trip = to 731 miles.
And the proposed reverse flow & added extension pipeline project, by TransCanada. A route from Ft. McMurray to St. John = 2734 miles. This is already starting to build up resistance! To be seen if they will prevail. Plus the current St. Johns refinery only has a capacity of 298,800 barrels a day.

So yes, a bit longer, But would like to see the financial differences?  :-\
