Twin Eagle marks start of Permian Rail Park project


Twin Eagle Sand Logistics LLC broke ground on the Permian Rail Park near Big Spring, Texas, the company announced yesterday.

The 530-acre park is located on a Union Pacific Railroad line about eight miles west of Big Spring. Twin Eagle's fifth terminal development, the park is centrally located to serve the Eastern side of the Permian Basin, Twin Eagle officials said in a press release.

Slated for completion in the first quarter of 2016, the project's first phase will be used initially for rail-to-truck sand transloading services. The project will feature more than 33,000 feet of track.

The project’s second phase will feature a loop track capable of supporting crude-by-rail market activity, as well as the infrastructure necessary to handle trucking solutions for crude and sand, officials said.

"The Permian Basin has demonstrated remarkable resilience in the face of a challenging price environment and will likely perform well into a recovery cycle," said Griff Jones, Twin Eagle’s chief executive officer.
