BRANDON, MB, May 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Cando, a leading railway support
services provider for 35 years, has entered into an agreement with
Tundra Energy Marketing Limited to provide railcar loading and
switching services at Tundra's new crude petroleum terminal near
The new facility has been designed to handle 30,000 barrels of crude per
day, with plans to grow to 60,000 barrels per day. Under a long-term
contract with Tundra, Cando will provide locomotives and operational
staff to perform all railcar loading and switching duties at the new
terminal, with plans to grow with Tundra's operational requirements.
The terminal will have the potential to handle crude oil unit trains of
more than 100 cars, which will generate greater efficiencies and market
reach for Canadian crude oil.
"As a Manitoba-based company with switching and railcar loading
operations across Canada and the United States, we are very pleased to
enter into a local switching and loading contract with a Manitoba
customer as highly regarded as Tundra," says Lee Jebb, Vice President
Railway Operations for Cando.
Cando has extensive experience switching and transloading for the
petroleum products sector. This will be the company's first Bakken
crude loading contract.
"We are very excited to be working with Cando on this rail loading
opportunity. This project continues Tundra's commitment to provide
infrastructure for producers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan to enhance
their options for marketing and storing their production," says Dale
Clark, Vice President Marketing for Tundra.
Cando will work with Canadian National Railway Company (CN) (TSX: CNR)
(NYSE: CNI), which hauls crude oil from the Cromer facility over its
North American network to key markets.
