Strobel Starostka Transfer to operate unit train facility in Wyoming


Eighty-Eight Oil L.L.C. has contracted Strobel Starostka Transfer (SST) to operate its new crude oil unit-train facility near Guernsey, Wyo.

Located on a BNSF Railway Co. mainline near the Guernsey crude pipeline hub, the recently completed facility is the first rail terminal in the area capable of loading multiple crude types, including oil from the Bakken and Niobrara shales, Powder River Basin, Big Horn Basin, southwest Wyoming and Canada, SST officials said in a press release.

A transload facility operator, SST will handle all operations and logistics at the facility, including the hiring and training of all personnel, rail integration, maintenance and infrastructure inspection.

The facility features three loop tracks, with universal entry and exit from each direction. The terminal has an initial throughput capacity of up to 80,000 barrels per day and includes two designated loading tracks with separate racks, enabling two trains to be loaded simultaneously with the same or different crude types, SST officials said.
