Crestwood’s new Rose Hill, N.C., rail terminal is designed to give propane marketers in the region more product reliability.

Crestwood opened its Rose Hill rail terminal in Rose Hill, N.C., just east of the Dixie pipeline.

The company says the new facility will provide propane marketers across North Carolina and the region with much-needed product reliability. It will bring supply to North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia from multiple shale origins.

Andy Ronald, Crestwood’s vice president of commercial development and national accounts, says the location will provide propane marketers with more convenient rail service seven days a week.

According to Crestwood, a two-spot truck rack, a five-spot rail rack and 240,000 gallons of on-site storage will allow for fast loading of up to 40 trucks per day while eliminating wait times in peak periods. A fully automated data transmission system will also provide users with accuracy and timely information.

Max Johnson, Crestwood’s supply and asset manager for the Southeast, says activity is already ramping up at the new terminal.

“Our two-spot truck rack and five-spot rail rack are already in use, and activity is moving into high gear,” Johnson says in a press release.

He adds that the terminal landscaping is almost complete and that the driveway has been paved.
