Mercuria launches pipeline-by-rail on the Panhandle Northern Railway

Written by admin

Mercuria Energy Trading, Inc., based in Chicago, has developed a terminal to ship crude oil on the Panhandle Northern Railway, which operates on 31 miles of track between the towns of Panhandle and Borger, Texas.

The site will receive product via truck from the surrounding production fields, be stored in tanks on site, then loaded to rail for shipment to refineries throughout the United States.

“We are pleased that Mercuria has chosen to locate their facility on the PNR,” said Mike Peters, chief commercial officer for OmniTRAX, Inc. “This selection further highlights the fact that the PNR is well located to service the growing energy sector in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma.”
