CIG Logistics, an oil and gas logistics provider, has opened a new rail terminal in Jal, New Mexico, to reduce transportation, transloading, and storage costs for oil producers operating in the Delaware Basin.
As the sixth terminal in CIG Logistics' network, the large-scale Jal terminal includes more than 550 rail car spots and 12,000 tons of silo storage capacity. The facility is designed and located to help oil producers decrease distance from rail terminal to wellhead, improve efficiencies, and decrease total operational costs.
The Jal terminal is set to receive and handle both manifest and unit trains, as well as to deliver real-time inventory management and business intelligence. To meet growing demand, a Phase 2 expansion of an additional 160 rail car spots and 6,000 tons of silo storage is being planned for early 2016.
