This is very bad, and why a pipeline is needed. The first derailment will shut down ALL petrochemical rail transport, due to the wailing of the greenies.
Not sure about Kinder Morgan.
Building rail lines for trains that use oil to transport that oil that could be transported by pipeline.
The one primary person benefiting from this is who? Why it is Warren Buffett; which means that the kenyan dictator fund will also receive its cut.
FUBO & FAD, down with the Democrat Party.
All due to Warren Buffett BNSF railcars of oil— and his preventing the building of a far more efficient Keystone Pipeline.... no trucks, no rails, no derailing no engineers, no labor unions to shut the flow. All that would be needed would be to guard the pipe. Constant flow, and an annual pipe “pig” run to check for stress/metal fatigue.
One corrupt lying bastard of a present_dent continues to rip us off and cause us to become a 3rd world nation. And we cannot mutually find the wherewithal to remove him by impeachment, such is the fear? Why the fear?
If “green” is our criteria, a pipeline is way greener than shipping by rail.
I looked at the UP system map, and didn’t see any local track in the Dakotas :(. I know that the UP has been shipping sand and supplies for fracking, but they must be transshipping through a short line or leasing competitor (BNSF) track. UP has a huge presense in Texas, especially around Houston, Ft. Worth, and along the coast. I know a pipeline is the ideal answer, and shipping by rail is an expensive second, but don’t beat up the railroaders (except BNSF), until the Keystone can be built.
