Got shale? We've got rail.
If your business involves the Utica/Marcellus Shale, then your
safest, most efficient and cost-effective transportation solution
likely includes our railroads.
Our lines in Ohio,
York directly overlay the core development areas of the Utica
and western Marcellus shale and offer connections with multiple
Class I railroads.
Oil and natural gas shale development needs rail. Typically, a
shale well requires 30 carloads of inbound well service materials
(pipe, sand, aggregates and lubricants) and can produce more than
20 carloads of outbound materials (drill cuttings, brine water,
NGLs and crude).
Rail provides producers and marketers with
benefits such as sourcing and market flexibility, reduced timing to
market, limited permitting requirements and reduced capital
If you are developing wells in the Marcellus
or Utica market, contact us to learn why we outscore trucking and
the overall railroad industry in customer
satisfaction. We offer railcar switching
services as well as transload, storage,
and brown/greenfield development sites and
have already expanded yard and track capacity to handle
