New North Dakota rail facility sends oil to Oklahoma

Written by 

A new rail shipping terminal in northwestern North Dakota is moving oil from the state's oil patch to Oklahoma.

Houston-based EOG Resources Inc. expects the first shipment from the terminal near Stanley, N.D., on Jan. 4, following a four-day trip. The new terminal is capable of loading 60,000 barrels of oil onto a 100-car unit train each day and unloads in Stroud, Okla., where it is then sent through a 17-mile pipeline to a terminal in Cushing, Okla.
