July 16, 2014
Natural Gas Intelligence reports that a new truck-to-rail transloading facility owned by Denver-based Concord Energy LLC, has opened in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The facility is capable of handling more than 150,000 bbl of crude oil condensate and natural gas liquids, and is expected to primarily serve E&P companies operating in southeast Ohio and northwest West Virginia. The facility will load light condensates, stabilized condensate, raw natural gas liquids (NGL) and purity NGL products, and includes warehouse space, a lay-down area and its location provides access to highways and the Ohio River. This announcement is the latest in a series of similar facilities that have revived dormant railroads and industrial sites throughout the region.
