Rail transport is one of the ways oil products get to market.

Without new pipelines, every new barrel of oil will move by rail. In 2015, about 140,000 barrels per day of crude oil - or about four per cent of Western Canada's production - were moved by rail.

Canadian crude oil producers support rail safety measures and will continue to work with service providers and Transport Canada to ensure the safe delivery of product.
