Brian Scheid and Herman Wang
Platts senior editors Herman Wang and Brian Scheid launch a new dating show for crude-by-rail regulations on this week's Capitol Crude. Can the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration find anything to like in the companies and trade groups that are jostling for favor as a new rule is crafted to dictate how crude oil moves by train?
Shell thickness, timing, cost and more will all play a role as federal regulators weigh the efforts of oil firms and railcar builders to change the coming rule.
