ND oil producers using rail for refinery shipping

Email

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota oil producers are making greater use of rail tanker cars to send their crude to refineries.

At least 10 railroad oil loading terminals are either operating or planned for western North Dakota.

By the end of the year they'll be capable of shipping close to 400,000 barrels of oil each day.

Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer says he sees the rail service as a stopgap measure while construction of oil pipelines catches up.
