Train transports make their way along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) rail line outside of Williston, North DakotaBy Patrick Rucker WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration weighed national standards to control explosive gas in oil trains last year but rejected the move, deciding instead to leave new rules to North Dakota, where much of the fuel originates. Current and former administration officials told Reuters they were unsure if they had the power to force the energy industry to drain volatile gas from crude oil originating in North Dakota's fields. Instead, they opted to back North Dakota's effort to remove the cocktail of explosive gas - known in the industry as 'light ends' - and rely on the state to contain the risk. The administration's internal debate shows that concern about the risks associated with oil trains reached the upper level of the White House.
