Permian Rail Park construction set to begin

Construction soon will begin on a 550-acre master planned industrial rail park in the Permian Basin.

The Permian Rail Park will be located about six miles west of Big Spring, Texas, and 30 miles east of Midland, Texas, in the heart of the Permian Basin's Wolfcamp and Cline shale plays. The property also is within 100 miles of the Delaware Basin's Bone Spring, Avalon and Wolfbone shales and within four miles of 10 major pipelines used to carry petroleum products to and from refineries.

The rail park will serve industrial tenants ranging from large distribution and manufacturing centers to small rail users, as well as oil field service and oil midstream companies seeking to transport products to and from the Permian Basin. The park will have the capacity to handle multiple unit trains per day, as well as provide manifest rail service to various end users and partners within the park.

Parcel sales, land leases and build-to-suit services will be available, all with full rail access.

The property is being developed by Frontier Logistics and Kyle Kinsel, the lead developers of the Mission Rail Park being built south of San Antonio. The Mission Rail Park is scheduled to open in August; the Permian Rail Park is expected to open by second-quarter 2014.
