    The Market analysis to the SEIS (Section 4 page 113) assumes that rail capacity will magically explode to meet increasing production in 2020 and beyond.  MB and I are arguing that there is no reason to assume that in the Constrained case, even if oil prices are high, that there will be the physical or political ability to send that quantity of trains to the Gulf refineries.  It hasn't happened in the past - not likely to happen in this political environment.

    The SEIS analysis is flawed - and in addition they did not adequately address what others, in the financial industry, have calculated as the likely outcome.
