New $90 million commodity hub planned for southeastern Saskatchewan

NORTHGATE, Sask. - A major grain storage and handling company is planning a $90 million hub in southeastern Saskatchewan to ship grain and oil.

Ceres Global Ag Corp. has bought about 607 hectares of land in Northgate, which is east of Estevan, along the border with North Dakota and plans to build the commodity logistics hub.

The hub would be connected to BNSF Railway's United States rail network.

It says the connection will give shippers access to customers in 28 states, Pacific and Gulf ports, and Mexico along BNSF's nearly 51,500 kilometre network.

Construction is planned to start in the spring, with initial grain and oil shipments expected later in 2013.

The facility will be built over three years, and has been designed ultimately to handle up to 40 million bushels of grain annually and 70,000 barrels of oil per day.
