- Companies moving crude oil by rail must test the volatility of fuel out of North Dakota's Bakken oilfields to ensure the proper classification of crude oil before it is transported, the Department of Transportation announces.
- The move is meant to step up oversight after several recent fiery derailments of oil moved by rail out of the Bakken; some data contends that Bakken crude is more combustible than oil from other areas.
- Bakken oil names include: CLR ,EOG, WLL, HES, KOG, OAS, NOG, EOX, MRO.
- Rails: CSX, NSC, KSU, GWR, CP, UNP.
