Effects of Diluted Bitumen on Crude Oil Transmission Pipelines:
TRB Special Report 311

This new report from the National Research Council analyzes whether shipments of diluted bitumen have a greater likelihood of release from pipelines than shipments of other crude oils. The oil sands region of Canada is the source of diluted bitumen shipped by pipeline to the United States.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 24, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
