Bakken Oil Express
Here at Bakken Oil Express, we are industry veterans with a combination of hundreds of years of experience in facilities and logistics.
2011 – Phase I
A subsidiary of BOE Midstream, LLC, the Bakken Oil Express (BOE) Rail Hub is the first “open access” multiple shipper unit train loading facility in operation in North Dakota, providing producers and marketers access to the many destinations served by rail.
Strategically located just west of Dickinson, North Dakota, BOE is located within the Three Forks shale oil play and connected to pipelines originating from the heart of the Bakken shale oil play.
In October 2011, BOE accepted first truck deliveries and was connected to the Four Bears/Belle Fourche regional pipeline system. With Phase 1 of the facility design completed and Phase 2 in progress, BOE now includes 4 rail loops (each approximately 8,000 feet long), tank storage currently being expanded from 215,000 to 435,000 bbls, and a “Truck Center” with multiple independent bays.
Initial rail loading capacity will be up to 100,000 BOPD, with a loading time of approximately 12 hours per train. Plans are in place that would allow for additional loops, tanks, rail loading racks and pipeline connections, which could potentially expand facility throughput to more than 200,000 BOPD. With 360 acres zoned industrial, BOE is also equipped to handle unit trains for oil field service materials.
2012 – Phase II
200,000 additional barrels of additional storage was added along with 20,000 ft of rail to support rail logisitics with 14 truck unload stations, shippers have access to rail facilities.
2014 – Phase III
Currently we are the only facility in North Dakota that can load 2 unit trains simultaneously because we have 4 loop tracks. The facility has over 640,000 barrels of storage. The facility has over 55,000 ft of rail to support customers options or needs.
Being located on the Southern main line in ND, this offers customers and shippers more options with completion of BOE pipeline in 2014, shippers have the flexibility to supply barrels to market.
