- The train derailment and fire in North Dakota that forced the evacuation of a nearby town is sure to trigger more debate about the safety of transporting oil as the U.S. reviews the proposal to build the Keystone XL pipeline (TRP).
- The accident in North Dakota is the fourth major North American derailment in six months by trains transporting crude, as record volumes of oil are moving by rail as U.S. output reaches its highest since 1988 and pipeline capacity has failed to keep up.
- Rail use probably would increase if Keystone is blocked, says Brigham McCown, a former director of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, while noting that pipelines have the advantage of being located mostly in more sparsely populated areas.
