HANNIBAL, Ohio, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Long Ridge Energy Terminal (“Long Ridge”) announced the completion of its rail loop track construction project, enabling the facility to take up to three unit trains of frac sand and other commodities at any given point in time. This project was completed in response to the rapidly growing frac sand and natural gas liquids demand associated with the Marcellus and Utica shale in East Ohio and the West Virginia panhandle.
Long Ridge is the only terminal in the Appalachian Basin with both unit train and barge transloading capabilities, providing customers with best-in-class optionality for sourcing frac sand and other commodities. In addition, Long Ridge has recently put into service a rail unloading pit, a frac sand conveyor belt system and frac sand silos with total storage capacity of 23,000 tons, and plans to commission a second barge dock in August 2018.
