Pipelines may be the most common means of transporting oil and gas and they certainly play a vital role in the industry. 然而, as the oil and gas boom heats up and more and more production sites come online there is a rapidly growing need for an additional means of transport. Crude-by-rail provides that alternative and in turn STI Group provides major construction, 制造, and industrial services to the crude-by-rail industry.
有一些主要的, important reasons why the crude-by-rail industry has become a growing player in the American oil and gas sector. 主要原因包括:
增加产能, The rapid expansion in production and distribution has resulted in an urgent need for increased capacity. Many pipelines are already functioning at or near their capacity. Transporting some of the crude by rail adds valuable capacity to to the industry.
安全- In recent months there have been growing concerns about the 安全 of pipelines and the effect that a leak could have on groundwater and the environment. For the most part pipelines are a very safe means of transport; however, due to the perception of possible problems many new pipeline proposals are facing logistical and legal hurdles. Meanwhile crude-by-rail has an excellent 安全 record and provides an excellent viable alternative.
速度- - - - - - Even without the delays associated with difficulties in being approved, 管道的建造需要很长时间. By contrast the rail infrastructure is already well-established and in place in many of the areas where a means of transport is crucially needed. Crude-by-rail allows for that transport to begin immediately.
灵活性- Crude-by-rail also offers added flexibility in many cases. The crude can easily be sent directly to different markets as needed rather than having to navigate a more rigid network of pipelines to get to the locales where it is in demand.
成本- Once a pipeline is fully in place and operational it is a very cost effective means of transporting crude. 然而, getting the pipeline in place is a very expensive undertaking and requires a large upfront investment. By contrast transporting crude-by-rail requires a relatively much lower upfront investment in many cases.
