Lashburn Terminal was built to support the transfer of heavy crude from oil field trucks to rail tank cars.  The terminal was originally constructed to transload 3,500 bbls/d. Volumes have grown significantly during the past several years and the terminal has undergone a series of expansions. The terminal is now unit train capable and can load over 88,000 bbls/d.

The terminal processes heavy crude using tanks as a buffer between the trucks and rail cars. Lashburn Terminal is equipped with 26 pull through truck unloading racks to ensure no waiting time. It is also equipped with twenty railcar loading racks to handle unit trains as well as manifest car loading simultaneously.

Initially, the terminal had track to spot 12 cars. Subsequent track expansions increased the storage capacity to 350 tank cars. A further expansion will move this to over 500 cars of onsite car storage. Terminal custody transfer complies with AER directive 17 standards.

Unity-BSW-test

Located in the Town of Unity, this terminal was Altex's third terminal. Built on lands owned by CN, the terminal, focuses on processing and transloading oil and placing it in rail tank cars. Terminal custody transfer to AER Directive 17 standards are met through the employment of a truck scales.

Although the terminal was initial constructed to transload 5,250 bbls/d, it has undergone a series of expansions. Today the terminal easily processes and transloads 15,000 bbls/d but has a design capacity of 29,000 bbls/d.

In addition to the terminal, the site employs two sidings and has the ability to store and move 66 cars.

As with all our terminals, Altex has designed, constructed and operates this facility with full regard for the environment and public health and safety. We have employed the best engineering practices in the design and construction of this project with an emphasis on best environmental practices. A vapor recovery system has been deployed on to our process tanks and this system has been expanded to include all the vapors that could be emitted including from the top of the tank cars.

Located in CN's Lynton terminal, south east of the Fort McMurrary Airport.

The terminal was designed to deliver dilbit into tank cars and receive diluent via the same tank cars. The terminal was initially constructed to transload 15,000 bbls/d, but is capable of 27,000 bbls/d with two switches/day. The site was design to be able to add additional tanks and rail car loading and unloading racks. 

The site employs three sidings plus several track pull backs and it has the ability to store and move 40 cars. During the next phase additional track will be added and the terminal's operational capacity should exceed 50 cars per day with only one switch.

As with all our terminals, Altex has designed, constructed and operates this facility with full regard for the environment and public health and safety. We have employed the best engineering practices in the design and construction of this project with an emphasis on best environmental practices. Terminal custody transfer complies with AER Directive 17 standards. A modern vapour recovery system has been deployed on our process tanks and tank cars.

Lloyd loading railcarIn October of 2010, the terminal was used for demonstrative purposes. Formally commissioned in late March 2011 as a commercial terminal, Lloydminster became Altex's first successful transloading terminal.

Altex's Lloydminster transload terminal supports the transfer of heavy crude from oil field trucks to tank cars.

Terminal custody transfer complies with AER directive 17 standards are met by metering to oil from the truck to the tank car. All the tank cars are top loaded to prevent to chances of a spill. The terminal typically processes and transloads about 3,000 bbls/d.
