Long Ridge terminal wraps up rail loop project in Ohio
Long Ridge Energy Terminal has completed its rail loop construction project in Hannibal, Ohio, which makes the facility the first in the Appalachian Basin to offer unit-train and barge transloading capabilities.
CSX serves the terminal.
The project was completed in response to the rapid increase in demand for frac sand and natural gas liquids associated with the Marcellus and Utica shales in East Ohio and the West Virginia panhandle, Long Ridge officials said in a press release.
Long Ridge also recently put into service a rail unloading pit, a frac-sand conveyor belt system and frac-sand silos with total storage capacity of 23,000 tons. The company plans to commission a second barge dock in August 2018, Long Ridge officials said.
