Savage Creates Service Bundle At Transloading Site

By The Bakken magazine staff | February 10, 2014

The bundle-based vision of Savage, a national logistics and service provider to the oil and gas industry, is now becoming very clear. Earlier this year, the company opened a transloading facility near Trenton, N.D., to supply the Bakken with drilling pipe and pipe services. Erik Skoy, vice president of oil and gas for the company said that bundling services allows a company to be unique from other similar companies. Savage has now increased its Trenton transloading service abilities by offering crude-by-truck capabilities.

The Trenton facility can now handle crude brought to the site via truck before shipping the crude on the BNSF mainline. The terminal provides truck dispatch and transportation, unit train loading, single car transloading and car storage for crude-by-rail shippers. The company has the ability to truck more than 10,000 barrels of oil per day. This month, the company will also add another 10,000 bopd capacity to its truck fleet. The terminal can move 100,000 bopd and the track capacity at the site can accommodate up to two unit trains simultaneously. There is storage for more than 50 rail cars. Currently, the facility has six crude receiving truck bays and 290,000 barrels of tankage. Expansions are already underway for increased tank storage, truck receiving ability and outbound unit train loading abilities, according to Savage.
