USD Partners moving ahead with Canada crude by rail expansion | Reuters

(Reuters) – USD Partners LP has begun expansion work at one of Canada’s largest crude by rail loading terminals, which will boost capacity at the facility by 50 percent and be completed by year end, the head of the company’s Canada unit told Reuters.

The expansion at Hardisty, Alberta, will increase loading capacity to three 120-car unit trains per day, or roughly 225,000 barrels, to meet strong demand from both producers and refinery customers amid pipeline bottlenecks, said Jim Albertson, senior vice president, Canadian Business Unit, for parent USD Group.

The group operates a network of oil and fuel loading, unloading and storage terminals across North America.
