Warren Buffet’s Keystone Bonanza
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 9:39 pm

Frank Friday

As most readers are aware, President Obama is doing everything he can to indirectly kill the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which was to bring millions of barrels of oil from Canada’s tar sands region into the United States, creating jobs and growing our North American energy supply. Canadian leaders are now talking up an alternative pipeline to their western ports to ship all that oil to China. That may not be so easy though, as such a pipeline would be very expensive, having to cross the Canadian Rockies, and it faces its own enormous environmental opposition.

However, there is a quick and easy, but not so cheap, solution at hand: railroads. Railroads are often called on to transport oil when pipeline capacity is maxed out. Much of the giant Bakken Field in the North Dakota is now being rail served while waiting for new pipelines to be built. Shipping oil by rail costs more than a pipeline, but is more flexible, allowing shipments to wherever oil is priced the highest, and can be started almost immediately, compared to a pipeline which can take years to permit and build.

BNSF Railway is the major oil player in North Dakota, and its extensive lines into Canada make it the logical choice to ship most of the Canadian oil when all the alternatives are ruled out. Railroads typically charge several thousand dollars just to ship one tank car from the Dakotas to the Gulf, which move in 100 car unit trains. Canada could potentially supply many dozens of these trains daily if it totally committed to rail shipments, providing many new billions of revenue for BNSF.

Oh, by the way, you may know the guy who just bought BNSF, Warren Buffet. Is it just luck, or smarts, or something else?

Ravens bracing for Rice absence (The SportsXchange)
The Baltimore Ravens are still waiting to hear from the NFL regarding a potential suspension for running back Ray Rice following a felony aggravated assault case this offseason. Rice was involved in a domestic violence incident with his wife at an Atlantic City casino. The NFL has yet to rule on his status for the season, but a potential multigame suspension is expected. "It's not my decision to make, or any of us here," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

Ravens look forward, not backward at training camp (The Associated Press)
Not much has gone right for the Baltimore Ravens in the 17 months since they won the Super Bowl. After defeating the San Francisco 49ers to claim their second championship, the Ravens sputtered to an 8-8 finish in 2013 and missed the playoffs for the first time since coach John Harbaugh took over in 2008. During the past offseason five players were arrested - most notably running back Ray Rice, who is awaiting word on a possible suspension for allegedly assaulting his fiancee in Atlantic City. Harbaugh and the Ravens will attempt to put all that behind them this summer at training camp.

Ravens LB Mosley eager to carry on tradition (The Associated Press)
C.J. Mosley completely understands the significance of becoming part of a defense that has a long-standing reputation of greatness. Mosley, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft, will seek this summer to become a starting linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens. Athletes who have starred at the position for Baltimore include Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott - who once wore the No. 57 now utilized by Mosley. The Ravens won two Super Bowls by playing rugged defense, and now Mosley is being asked to adhere to that custom.
