Oil-to-rail project planned near Douglas
Casper Star Tribune–April 4, 2013
DOUGLAS – A Houston company is seeking permission to build a crude-oil rail-loading facility near Douglas, joining a growing group of new Wyoming facilities shipping oil by train.
A representative of Genesis Oil told Converse County commissioners Wednesday that his company has applied to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality for permission to build a crude-oil rail-loading facility near Douglas.
The company, doing business in Wyoming as subsidiary Pronghorn Rail Services, has yet to receive permission for the rail facility. Genesis representative Dwayne Morley said the potential rail facility is “just an idea at this point” and could offer few details about the company’s plans for the site.
In the meantime, the company will build truck-to-pipe loading infrastructure at the same location, located on Country Road 55 about 15 miles north of Douglas. Read the entire article HERE…
