Posted on September 5, 2018

Torq Energy Logistics Ltd. announced a new frac sand transloading facility with operations commencing at Buick Creek, B.C., 75 kilometers northwest of Fort St. John. The terminal is being developed by an affiliate of TORQ and will be operated by TORQ Transloading Inc.

The terminal will be developed in a series of phases. The initial phase will allow for delivery of 50 railcars per week, with direct transloading from railcar to truck. With track space of 8,000 ft., unit train deliveries will be accommodated in the second phase of development. TORQ anticipates advancing phase two of the development in early 2019. Additionally, the second phase will include full build out of multi-commodity transloading capabilities potentially including NGLs, HCL, diesel and chemicals.

"Working closely with CN, the Buick Creek Terminal will provide much needed additional commodity transloading capacity to meet the strong demand in the area", the company said.
