Rail Services

OmniPort's 100,000 Bbls/d rail operations consist of over 15 miles of rail track directly serviced by both UP and BNSF, with no short-line railroad between the Facility and UP and BNSF's service.

The rail can be loaded or unloaded directly to/from barge, pipeline, truck, and tank. The robust pumping system is capable of handling crude products with an API gravity ranging from 14 to 55 without heat, and 8 to 14 API with steam.
