Crestwood Celebrates Propane Rail Terminal Grand Opening in Montgomery, New York

Kansas City, MO (September 7, 2017) – Crestwood Services, the Supply & Logistics unit of Crestwood Equity Partners LP, celebrated the official Grand Opening of its new rail terminal in Montgomery, New York, which is now fully operational. The terminal – believed to be the largest propane rail terminal in the United States – will provide propane marketers across New York, New England and other parts of the Northeast with reliable supply year ‘round.

The terminal’s state-of-the-art design includes a 16-spot rail rack operating two switches per day, assuring a capacity of up to 100 trucks per day. The four-spot truck rack with can pumps loads four trucks in 17 minutes, eliminating long wait times during peak winter months and optimizing daily transportation.

“The Montgomery rail terminal signifies a major investment Crestwood has made toward improving the industry’s supply reliability,” said Tucker Perkins, president and CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council, spoke to guests during the luncheon. “Its strategic location will support marketers’ number one goal of delivering quality product year ‘round to business and home owners throughout the Northeast who rely on clean-burning American propane for a wide-range of applications. It’s an example of the significant investment that propane providers are making in infrastructure.”

Andy Ronald, vice president of supply and logistics development for Crestwood Services said, “This new rail terminal will provide propane marketers across the Northeast with reliable supply on a year-round basis. The convenient location of the terminal offers marketers greater access to product, which is controlled by Crestwood from multiple shale producers in the Marcellus and Utica. Marketers in this region can finally rest easier knowing they’ll have reliable supply, when they need it.”

The terminal – which is serviced by the Middleton & New Jersey (M&NJ) Railroad – was designed and built by Superior Energy Systems of Columbia Station, Ohio. Ronald added, “We can’t say enough good things about the quality of the work done by the team at Superior Energy Systems. They built a first class facility and the project was completed on-time and to our specifications.”
