Williston Wire -- The Most Interesting Story: CBR Taking Bbls Away From Pipelines; Enbridge Pipeline System is Underused; Think Again Whether Keystone XL Is Key To ND Bakken

Headlines only; no links. It is easy to subscribe to the Williston Wire.

North Dakota #1 in job creation. Not a surprise.

Governor Jack Dalrymple signs $720 million road bill.

The North Dakota Pipeline Authority released a new map that indicates the locations of twenty-two (22) crude oil loading facilities in North Dakota. One can find the map at the "Maps" page at the Pipeline Authority website:

Ceres Global Ag Corp, an agriculture investment firm, is building a $90 million Canadian export hub at the North Dakota border to expand shipping capacity for grains and crude oil into the US.  The 1,500-acre facility in Northgate, Saskatchewan, will be linked to BNSF Railway's US network. k

Granite Peak, Cogen Energy to build a joint crude oil unit train loading facility along BNSF Railway's mainline at Granit Peak's Casper Logistics Hub near Casper, WY: soorage and lodading.

Bakken oil hits the East Coast; previously reported at the blog.

Enbridge's North Dakota pipeline system has been underused for the past three months as railroads move more oil out of the Bakken shale play. Enbridge's plans to expand its pipeline network out of the Bakken won't stop railroads from taking business. "This trend is not temporary. Rail transportation is becoming mrore competitive and will continue to take barrels away from the Enbridge North Dakota system." [Comment: I remember a few months ago "anonymous" sent in a comment that crude-by-rail was a temporary phenomenon and once pipelines were in place, CBR would decline. Just saying. Times are a'changing.]

Montana releases new energy infrastructure map. The map can be accessed through the Montana Commerce website. When you get to the link, left sidebar, "Information," then click on "Resource and Infrastructure Maps."

This was posted previously; nice reminder: Sonic Drive-In Coming To Williston. My last hamburger in Midland-Odessa a year or so ago was at a Sonic Drive-in. Just saying.

And many more stories that have been posted at the blog.
