USD Partners has started operations at its crude oil terminal in Stroud, Oklahoma.
The planned work required to allow the terminal to handle heavier grades of crude oil was completed one time and under the initial planned budget.
The Stroud terminal provides a destination point for rail-to-pipeline shipments of heavy crude oil from USD's Hardisty terminal in Western Canada and provides connectivity to one of the largest crude oil storage hubs in North America – Cushing.
Approximately 50% of the Stroud terminal's current capacity is available and actively being marketed to meet the takeaway needs of current and future customers.
Alexandra Batycky, associate director of USD Group, says: 'Our ability to deliver on time and under budget is a testament to the dedication, collaboration, and execution by the various stakeholders involved including our customer, the railroads and USD.'
