      Currently, pipelines account for 70% of crude oil transportation, followed by 23% on marine barges and tankers, 4% by truck, and 3% by rail. However, with the rise in production of crude oil, rail transportation has seen a rise in usage, due to the ability to carry larger ://   For example, the studies concentrated on North Slope crude oil on cobble shorelines in a high-latitude environment. During the early s, there was an increase in bioremediation field trials associated with accidental spills, largely as a result of the perceived success of the bioremediation program following the Exxon Valdez incident [ 93 ].
