CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Macquarie Energy Canada Ltd will supply Korea National Oil Corp's KOILC.UL Newfoundland refinery with oil and buy petroleum products from the plant under a new agreement, state-run KNOC's Canadian unit said on Wednesday.

The deal, which comes into effect in November, replaces an existing agreement for the 115,000 barrel a day refinery in Come By Chance, Newfoundland, Harvest Operations Corp, KNOC's Canadian subsidiary, said in a statement.

It is a continuing agreement that has an initial one-year term. No volumes or dollar figures were disclosed.

Harvest will provide storage tanks for the feedstock and petroleum products and is responsible for vessel loading and offloading, it said.
