SUGAR LAND, TX–(Marketwired – Aug 17, 2015) – Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) — Getting the crude oil out of Alberta’s oil sands has been a constant logistics problem for producers in the land-locked province. Pipelines are one of the safest and cheapest per-barrel methods of transportation; however, they can be held up in permitting for years. Crude-by-rail competes directly with pipelines to get crude oil from landlocked plays, such as the Alberta oil sands and the Bakken Shale, to virtually any of the North American refining hubs. With production at Alberta’s oil sands continuing to increase, the demand for more takeaway capacity will keep export pipeline mega-projects for crude oil in demand through the end of the decade, when some are scheduled to be completed.
Within this article: Details of crude oil takeaway capacity in the Alberta oil sands, including planned and ongoing projects from leading companies such as TransCanada Corporation (NYSE:TRP) and Kinder Morgan Incorporated (NYSE:KMI).
