Enserco Midstream plans a new crude oil trans-loading facility in Douglas, WY. The Douglas Rail Terminal will have loading capacity of 60,000 b/d, initially, with the potential to expand to 120,000 b/d. With a great location in the heart of Wyoming's growing crude oil plays, I suspect a lot of the crude moved will be local. The facility will have the ability to take and move crude delivered from Canada and the Bakken. If rail can provide better netbacks than local pipelines, you can bet Montana and North Dakota production will make the jump onto the railway.
With its prime location on the main line of the BNSF Railway, the Douglas Rail Terminal provides access to storage and refining markets across the United States," said Griff Jones, president and CEO if Twin Eagle Resource Management
Operations are expected to begin in June 2013, with full unit train operations available in March 2014.
"Our Douglas Rail Terminal will be one of the first to provide rail export to companies in this growing producing region of the country. It expands our ability to provide our customers with cost-effective transportation of excess production," said Tim Kirwin, Enserco VP.
