East Valley Industrial Park to construct Bakken unit train logistics hub

East Valley Industrial Park LLC has received first round funding for the East Valley Rail Terminal (EVR) located east of Williston, North Dakota. Contracts have been let for mainline turnout installation and site construction, beginning this summer. Initial operations are scheduled for December.

Once online, EVR will be an inbound oilfield service supply terminal in the Williston Basin. At full buildout, the terminal will be able to handle three inbound and three outbound trains per day, in unit train or manifest service. Storage will be constructed to handle up to 240,000 tons of frac sand and other proppants.

The terminal will accommodate the shipping, receiving, storage, and distribution of additional products such as NGL, drill and line pipe, cement, chemicals, fuel, oil and agricultural products.
