Rail has become a serious alternative to pipeline for getting crude to market in recent years. The crude industry has become familiar with rail, and companies like yours are shifting their focus to understanding best practices and optimizing their crude transportation strategies. At the same time, new questions are being asked about crude-by-rail's long-term viability.

Regulators are evaluating new safety rules that could increase costs; shrinking price differentials are creating new challenges in making CBR profitable; and looming decisions on Keystone XL and other pipeline projects could limit the appeal of rail. Rail however offers a flexibility that cannot be replicated by pipeline, but understanding how to take advantage of rail and how to make rail profitable for your business is a complex and time-consuming challenge.

INFONEX's Crude-by-Rail has been designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the issues that will impact your crude-by-rail decisions. Our faculty of leading experts will show you the networks, destinations, and markets that are available; discuss the future of crude-by-rail, crude pricing dynamics, and crude-by-rail economics; and explain incoming safety regulations and the impact on the cost of crude-by-rail.

Understand the nuances of supply and demand of crude oil in North America. Get status updates on Keystone XL and other pipeline projects. Examine the legal risks involved in crude transportation and discuss liability issues related to crude-by-rail. Monitor the prices that different markets will pay for crude. Explore transloading infrastructure and new projects that integrate rail with pipeline and barge. Decipher railcar supply and procurement issues. Study safety risks in crude transportation. Compare the advantages and disadvantages of rail and pipeline. Hear upstream, downstream, and midstream perspectives on how to take. Discuss the state of public opinion efforts to increase the public's acceptance of crude-by-rail.

The crude-by-rail industry has evolved extremely quickly and navigating the market has become increasingly complex. Join us in Calgary to get a thorough understanding of available networks, pricing forecasts, and regulatory impacts. Register today!
