Wyoming Public Media quotes Trisha Curtis in “Wyoming could see more crude-by-rail shipments in the future” on January 6, 2014. 

Trisha Curtis is with the Energy Policy Research Foundation. She says most crude from the Bakken does not travel through Wyoming, but that the state could see a spike in crude-by-rail traffic with new rail loading facilities coming online in the next year.

“There are seven crude-by-rail facilities that are proposed or planned or in construction in Wyoming,” Curtis says. “When those are built, your share of how much is actually coming in and out of Wyoming will increase significantly.”
