Report on Tar Sands Pipeline Safety Risks by NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), USA

NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), USA says Tar sands crude oil pipeline companies may be putting America’s public safety at risk. The report recommends improvement of spill response planning for DilBit pipelines.

Increasingly, pipelines transporting tar sands crude oil into the United States are carrying diluted bitumen or "DilBit" -- a highly corrosive, acidic, and potentially unstable blend of thick raw bitumen and volatile natural gas liquid condensate -- raising risks of spills and damage to communities along their paths.
