It is cheaper to ship one product rather than many.  They build refineries near consumption or export terminals.

A report in the Billings, MT paper today said the Bakken oil is "light sweet" crude, and more volatile than the heavier crude produced in most areas today.  As far as I know they don't put any dilutants in it, unlike the tar sands oil from Alberta.
