North American Crude-by-Rail - NACR 

CPE Credits Awarded: 2
Categories: Oil Industry, Online Training

Description

North American Crude-by-Rail is an online training course that will explore the growing use of crude-by-rail, its advantages and possible drawbacks. Thought to be too expensive and a cumbersome way to move crude oil in North America as recently as 2010, the use of Crude-by-Rail transport has surged in recent years. Its use has provided a means for North American (US and Canada) crude oil production without access to pipeline networks to flow to distant markets and has enabled refiners to exploit a lower cost and alternative source of supply.

There are no pre-requisites for this course and no advance preparation is required.
