Crestwood Midstream plans to expand its rail terminal in Rose Hill, North Carolina, just east of the Dixie Pipeline.

Crestwood opened the terminal one year ago to bring supply to North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia from multiple shale gas origins. The company hopes that the expansion will create more opportunities for propane marketers in the region to diversify their supply sources, according to Max Johnson, supply and asset manager for the southeast at Crestwood.

Crestwood expects to complete the project in September without any disruptions to current operations during construction.

“Response from customers to our Rose Hill facility, which opened a year ago in May, has been stronger than anticipated,” Johnson says. “We are confident that investing in an expansion will also be well-received by marketers across the region.”

The terminal currently features 240,000 gallons of on-site storage, a two-spot truck rack and a five-spot rail rack. The expansion will triple the capacity of the operation, adding the following elements to the terminal:

“Rose Hill’s strategic location allows us to provide peace of mind for marketers who serve customers in the eastern half of the state,” says Andy Ronald, vice president of commercial development and national accounts at Crestwood.
