Bakken Shale


We connect the Bakken Shale to refineries and other facilities throughout North America.

If you're shipping to or from the Bakken Shale region, talk to us. We are the only rail carrier providing single-line haul service between the Bakken and major crude oil markets in the Northeastern United States. Our location in the heart of the Bakken region means easy access for shipping and receiving other oilfield-related products such as frac sand, steel pipe, oilfield tubular products, aggregates, chemicals, fuel condensate, construction materials and dimensional cargo.​

We work with companies on both sides of the border, and with our access to ports and transload facilities and our connections to short line, regional and Class 1 carriers, we provide unparalleled access to the Bakken Shale region and the U.S. Gulf Coast, U.S. Midwest, U.S. Northeast and Canadian markets.

We also provide rail access to other crude oil markets in Alberta and Saskatchewan and the oil sands through Alberta's Industrial Heartland
