Crude Oil Trans-loading Terminal Planned In Powder River Basin

April 2013, Vol. 240 No. 4

Enserco Midstream, LLC, a subsidiary of Twin Eagle Resource Management, LLC, plans to build and operate a crude oil trans-loading terminal to serve producers in the Niobrara and Bakken Shale formations and Canada.

The facility will be built in Douglas, WY, the heart of the Powder River Basin. The Douglas Rail Terminal will have unit train capability on the main line of the BNSF Railway along with crude oil storage capacity for efficient operation. In the future, it is expected the facility will handle NGL trans-loading as well.

The multimillion-dollar facility will have two rail loops with ladder tracks to handle NGL trans-loading. It will be capable of receiving crude oil trucks and will be connected to local crude oil pipelines. Rail-loading capacity will be 60,000 bpd with expansion capacity of up to 120,000 bpd. Manifest operations are expected to begin in June with full unit train operations available in March 2014.
