Eighty-Eight Oil to build Wyoming unit train loading station

Eighty-Eight Oil LLC plans to build and operate a unit train loading station on BNSF Railway Co.’s mainline near the Guernsey, Wyo., crude oil pipeline hub. The station will be directly connected to EEO’s existing 2-million bbl Guernsey crude terminal which receives oil from Butte Pipeline, Belle Fourche Pipeline, Platte Pipeline, and the Rocky Mountain Pipeline System. The Guernsey terminal also has truck unloading facilities.

The rail terminal will initially include three loop tracks and required tankage for unit train loading. Each loop track will be capable of holding one unit train, with the automated racks capable of loading different crude types onto two trains simultaneously. Initial rail loading capacity will be 80,000 b/d with expansion capability.

EEO says Guernsey will be the first rail transloading terminal capable of loading multiple crude types, including those from the Williston basin (Bakken), the Powder River basin (Niobrara), Southwest Wyoming, the Big Horn basin, and Canada. The company expects the terminal to enter service later this year.

BNSF also provides transportation for Inergy Crude Logistics’ COLT Terminal in the North Dakota portion of the Bakken shale (OGJ Online, June 11, 2012).
