Following U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to revoke the cross-border operation permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, many crude shippers are turning to alternatives to move their oil. New product transfer facilities will be needed to help serve the demand for shipping by rail and truck; older transfer facilities will need to be upgraded and retrofitted in order to more efficiently load and unload crude. Aura Engineering has the expertise to help keep supplies moving across North America. 

The cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline will necessarily result in more oil-by-rail and oil-by-truck shipments, and a moratorium placed on new federal oil, gas, and coal permits may cast doubt on the future of the pipeline industry as a whole. These changes are certain to increase the demand for transfer facility services in order to serve U.S. demand for crude, particularly along the Gulf Coast. If your organization needs to make sure your transfer facility is up to the task, we can help.
