The US Energy Information Administration said that "The increase in oil volumes transported by rail reflects rising US crude oiloil production, which reached an estimated 8.5 million barrels per day in June for the first time since July 1986."
...and petroleum products category from January through July consisted of crude oiloil up from around 3 percent in 2009," EIA officials said. "With the average rail tank car holding around 700 barrels of crude oil, about 759,000 barrels of crude oil per day were moved by rail during the first seven months of 2014, equal to 8 percent of U S oil production."
"EBITDA totalled US 1,080 million in H1 2014 compared to US$925 million for the corresponding period of 2013."
Contributing to the accident, according to the 90-page report, was "the lack of a safety management program that would have identified and mitigated the risks associated with the continued operation of the bridge."
