Ohio Company Completes Loop Track

An Ohio company has completed a rail loop construction project at its facility in Hannibal.

Long Ridge Energy Terminal is the first in the Appalachian Basin to offer unit-train and barge transloading capabilities to its terminal, which is served by CSX.

In a news release, Long Ridge said the project was completed in response to the rapid increase in demand for frac sand and natural gas liquids associated with the Marcellus and Utica shales in Eastern Ohio and the West Virginia panhandle.

Long Ridge said it has put into service a rail unloading pit, a frac-sand conveyor belt system and frac-sand silos with total storage capacity of 23,000 tons. The company plans to commission a second barge dock in August.
