Crestwood Services plans to develop a new rail terminal in Montgomery, New York.

The Montgomery terminal is expected to open in the summer of 2017, according to Crestwood. The terminal will serve propane marketers in New York, New England and other parts of the Northeast.

The terminal will include a 16-spot rail rack operating two switches per day, which will assure a capacity of up to 100 trucks per day or a volume of 1 million gallons, Crestwood says. The four-spot truck rack with can pumps will load four trucks in 17 minutes to reduce wait times during peak winter months.

In addition, the Middleton and New Jersey Railroad, which can operate seven days per week, will service the terminal, Crestwood adds.

“With this facility, we can provide propane marketers in New York and the Northeast with reliable supply since the terminal is backed by product controlled by Crestwood from multiple shale producers in the Marcellus and Utica,” says Andy Ronald, vice president of commercial development and national accounts at Crestwood Services. “We are confident the Montgomery terminal will bring much-needed supply to customers in New York and across New England and the Northeast.”

Pricing structures are available for varied supply plans and regional uses, including summer-only plans and full-ratio structures to meet any need, the company says.

  1. Just one more reason why the LPG storage facility on the shoreline of Seneca Lake, the largest body of freshwater in NY State, the drinking water supply for 100,000 residents, and the Heart of the Finger Lakes wine and tourism industry is not only a bad idea, but isn’t even necessary. Instead of Crestwood continuing to push this ill conceived project only because it’s cheap storage solution, perhaps they should pursue projects where the propane is closer to the end user. In the long run, that makes more economic sense anyway.
