Oil and Gas Transportation: Department of Transportation Is Taking Actions to Address Rail Safety, but Additional Actions Are Needed to Improve Pipeline
Susan Fleming (au)
Technology advancements such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (pumping water, sand, and chemicals into wells to fracture underground rock formations and allow oil or gas to flow) have allowed companies to extract oil and gas from shale and other tight geological formations. As a result, oil and gas production has increased more than fivefold from 2007 through 2012. The Department of Transportation (DOT) oversees the safety of the U.S. transportation system. This report examines (1) overall challenges that increased oil and gas production may pose for transportation infrastructure; (2) specific pipeline safety risks and how DOT is addressing them; and (3) specific rail safety risks and how DOT is addressing them. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
