CHS and Federation Cooperative of Black River Falls, Wisconsin have signed a long-term agreement to build a propane terminal at Hixton, Wisconsin. Scheduled for completion by this fall, the terminal will be located along Interstate 94 and be served by the CN Railroad. It will have the ability to unload six railcars every 4.5 hours with 360,000 gallons of storage and two truck bays capable of loading six trucks per hour. The terminal will serve Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.
The project is part of a $24 million investment announced by CHS to expand propane service to the area affected by the planned reversal of the Cochin Pipeline. The 1,900-mile line has been used to deliver propane from Canada to the Midwest but owner Kinder Morgan is currently modifying the pipeline to instead deliver petroleum products from Kankakee County, Illinois to Canada. This was the pipeline which was out of service for a while and contributed to the propane crisis earlier this year.
