As typical pipeline shipments need to be diluted with 30 percent condensate to reduce viscosity, moving bitumen by rail has become a viable option. Unit trains are comprised of a single commodity and are typically assembled and disassembled at a single origin and destination, providing economies of scale, short lead times and rail freight efficiencies.
