Savage is expanding services at its terminals in the Uinta and Williston basins to include crude transportation via truck. With Savage’s capability for crude by rail transloading services, the addition of truck transportation allows Savage to offer oil and gas companies a complete logistics solution from the wellhead to the refinery.
The Savage rail-served terminals in Trenton, North Dakota, and in Price and Salt Lake City, Utah, provide crude bound for key refinery markets access to rail transportation. Truck transportation fills the gap of getting the crude from the wellsite to these transload terminals. The Savage terminal in Price, Utah, is the first facility in the area to offer crude by rail origination services on the Union Pacific Railroad. The Savage terminal in Salt Lake City provides access to the Bingham & Garfield shortline. The Savage terminal in Trenton offers direct access to the BNSF mainline.
The Savage crude transportation terminals in Utah provide truck dispatch and transportation, rail car switching, railcar spotting, transloading and car storage related to crude handling for rail transport. In the Uinta Basin, Savage is now equipped to truck over 50,000 barrels and transload over 70,000 barrels of crude each week. In the Williston Basin, Savage has the capacity to truck over 10,000 barrels per day, and the company will add an additional 10,000 barrels per day capacity by February.
