08:07 EDTCP, TRP, KMI, BRK.A, CNI, ENBCanada, Keystone can learn from Buffett's BNSF railroad, WSJ reports
If you want to get a sense of what's going to happen with Canadian oil amid TransCanada's (TRP) Keystone XL pipeline battle, see Warren Buffett's (BRK.A) latest letter, reports the Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street." Buffett writes that his BNSF railroad company now transports 500,000 barrels of oil a day. Much is from the Bakken shale, where production growth has outpaced pipelines. The resulting local glut led the discount between Bakken oil and Brent crude to surge beyond $45 a barrel a year ago (narrowed now to $19). BNSF has driven its trains through that price gap, enabling Bakken producers to get their barrels to customers rather than slow production. Canadian oil producers face a tougher battle. Western Canadian Select is a relatively heavy grade of oil, so it should be cheaper than a lighter benchmark like Brent. But the discount, now $38 a barrel, owes much to transportation bottlenecks. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasts production from Western Canada will hit 5.5M barrels a day by 2020, about double 2011's output. The bottom line: If Keystone doesn't get built, those ambitions will likely have to be scaled back. Reference Link

13:45 EDTCP, CNICanada introduces legislation to enhance crude-by-rail safety, accountability
The Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport, introduced legislation in the House of Commons that will enhance railway safety and make the rail industry and crude oil shippers more accountable to Canadians. The new Safe and Accountable Rail Act proposes amendments to the Canada Transportation Act and Railway Safety Act. Changes include a new liability and compensation regime for federally regulated railways, including minimum insurance requirements; a compensation fund financed by levies on crude oil shippers; increased information-sharing provisions; and stronger oversight powers for the Minister and Transport Canada inspectors. The new liability and compensation regime will be consistent with those the Government has introduced for other modes of transport, such as marine tankers and oil pipelines. It is based on the “polluter pays” principle and makes railways and shippers responsible for the cost of accidents, protecting taxpayers and communities by ensuring that adequate resources are available for compensation if an accident were to occur. Proposed amendments to the Railway Safety Act will broaden the powers of the Minister and inspectors to order railway companies and others to take specified measures or stop any activity deemed necessary for safe railway operations. The proposed amendments will also create new regulation- making powers requiring railway companies to share information with municipalities. These changes are part of the Government’s commitment to strengthen oversight and increase collaboration between communities and the rail industry, addressing issues raised in the Transportation Safety Board’s final report on the Lac-Mégantic derailment as well as concerns of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Publicly traded companies in the space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Canadian Pacific (CP), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU), Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Union Pacific (UNP).
