In the context of recent derailments, regulatory scrutiny on crude by rail is now more in the spotlight than ever and the very viability of using rail to transport crude is at stake. New regulatory requirements will impact every stakeholder involved in the crude by rail industry including E&Ps and crude traders, railroad operators, railcar manufacturers, transloaders and refiners.
It is vital that each of these stakeholders understands how new safety requirements will impact the cost of transporting crude by rail and what steps they will need to take to comply with new standards.
As a result of this, attendees of American Business Conferences' sell out Crude By Rail event requested that this one-off 2-day summit be held to focus specifically on how each stakeholder can cost effectively optimize safety in their operations to restore confidence, promote reliability, and maximize profitability.
As the only crude by rail event specifically focused on optimizing safety, the Crude By Rail Safety Initiative 2014 (Houston, June 24 - 25) will bring together speakers from every key stakeholder group, including regulators, shippers, railroad operators, transloaders and refiners to quantify the cost-impacts of improving the safety of crude by rail operations.
Expert speakers will breakdown railroad strategies for improving safety and shipper strategies for crude testing, classification and transloading, provide a cost-analysis of railcar upgrades, clarify how the emerging regulatory landscape will impact each stakeholder and examine best practice emergency response and hazmat training.
