Sugar Land company building oil and gas hub in N.M.May 14, 2014
CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) — A Texas company has begun construction on a new rail hub to help bring supplies in and take oil and gas out of the heart of southeastern New Mexico's booming energy country.
Rangeland Energy began construction on its rail spur near Loving in Eddy County on Tuesday.
The company says crude oil marketers, refiners and producers have all lined up to pay Rangeland Energy to use the hub, which will help bring fracking sand in and ship oil and gas out of the Delaware Basin oil fields.
Truck-to-rail operations are expected to begin in October.
