Heavy Oil Transport - Is It Time to Flowline?

There will be challenges around the movement of oil in the days ahead.  There is, as well, some interesting discussion of the implications of many of the new recovery methods (those discussed as well in other articles on this site) and how they may well facilitate the movement of produced oil.  For example, THAI production may improve viscosity to pipeline standards.  However, R&D must be done to try to make the changes ahead more efficient and both economically and environmentally sustainable.
