CASPER (AP) — Genesis Oil is seeking permission to build a facility near Douglas so that oil can be shipped by train.

A company representative told Converse County commissioners Wednesday that the company has applied to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality for permission to build a potential crude-oil rail-loading facility near Douglas.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that in the meantime, the company will build truck-to-pipe loading infrastructure there.

Genesis Oil does business in Wyoming as subsidiary Pronghorn Rail Services.

Two other developers are looking to build rail-loading facilities for oil in Guernsey and Casper, and Enserco Midstream LLC announced plans to build a similar facility in Douglas in March.

Those three projects could be operational this year.
