Terminal Expansion



Nameplate Capacity

Keystone provided project management, engineering, and design services for the expansion of a pipeline terminal, including the installation of a new 80,000 barrel tank and additional rail offload for ethanol storage, as well as a new eight inch transfer line. The existing ethanol rail offload was expanded to add spaces for another 20 cars, including the all rail infrastructure with containment, safety equipment, pump capacity upgrades and capability to provide product to an existing tank, the new 80,000 barrel tank, and provide flow to the new transfer line.

Additionally, a second facility takes deliveries from the pipeline and includes storage for all of the products (gasoline, diesel and ethanol, etc.). This facility was given the accommodations to fill transport trucks for delivery to customers using two separate additives, which provides the required lubricity additive for the ULSD and uses a VRU as the required vapor control unit for the truck loading area.

Scope of Work also included: composing performance specifications and assisting with procurement of railcar expansion, storage tank and electrical switchgear/MCC, 4-bay truck loading station, four new buildings, 6 new tanks, VRU system for the terminal/truck loading, fire and gas safety system for the terminal, ethanol blend skid, evaluating utility systems, modifying containment and drainage systems, and specifying equipment including: railcar offload pumps, transfer pumps, manifolds, and meters.
