"We are aggressively responding to the pace of development in the Bakken region by developing state-of-the-art facilities that can manage the outbound and inbound needs of our supplier and off-take customers."The company plans to continue ramping up operations at the terminal and expects to achieve "significant growth" in 2014 and beyond, he said.Dakota Plains also announced that construction on the UNIMIN Corp. joint venture frac sand terminal in New Town is on pace for completion in May. Interim operations began at the storage and transloading facility — which also will be served by CP — in late January.
