The safest way to transport oil is on the water.Kenneth Green with the Fraser Institute says researchers compiled government data from the past 40 years to come to that conclusion.“Pipelines, in fact, are two and a half less likely to experience a spill than is rail, Green noted, adding, “the overwhelming majority of spills are small; 70 per cent are below one or two litres of oil, and most of those happen in transport facilities, so not into the environment directly.”The report says pipelines have one spill for every 33 million barrels of oil transported.
