The Casper, WY-based midstream provider began construction on the Ross Road Terminal in October. The terminal is being built along Cowboy’s Powell Lateral II Pipeline, to which the terminal would be connected. 

The pipeline transports Rocky Mountain sweet crude to the “Midwest, Wyoming and all destinations beyond,” said Cowboy’s principal owner Gregg Werger. 

The terminal is to have an initial storage capacity of up to 10,000 b/d. It also would have truck offloading units and pipeline pumps. The terminal is expected to be capable of offloading and shipping crude in volumes of 20,000 b/d. 

Cowboy said the facility would be fully operational by April 1.

In the PRB, the privately owned company operates 32 miles of pipelines connected to the larger transmission system. The midstream provider is also active in the Permian Basin
