Summary:

The committee does not find any causes of pipeline failure unique to the transportation of diluted
bitumen. Furthermore, the committee does not find evidence of chemical or physical properties
of diluted bitumen that are outside the range of other crude oils or any other aspect of its
transportation by transmission pipeline that would make diluted bitumen more likely than other
crude oils to cause releases.
