Hosted by the Great Lakes Sea Grant Crude Oil Transport Network
The crude oil transport webinar series is meant to provide the latest research and resources to stakeholders in the region to inform decision-making around this complex issue. Anyone with a vested interest in how crude oil and associated products move throughout the region will find the content informative.
Each webinar will be available in a variety of formats: live on Zoom (see registration links below), live on Michigan Sea Grant’s Facebook page, and archived with captions on this webpage.
