Grain elevator and short-line railway operator Ceres Global (CERGF) says it received approval from U.S. and Canadian federal border agencies to link its Saskatchewan terminal to a rail line operated by Burlington Northern (BRK.A, BRK.B).

The move will allow Ceres to begin construction on the terminal, which will be able to ship 25K bbl/day of light crude and up to 40M bushels/year of grain once it is fully operational.

Ceres plans to ramp up shipments of light crude at the terminal to as much as 70K bbl/day within three years and install a liquefied natural gas pipeline from Saskatchewan refineries.
