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.
