U.S. Venture subsidiary completes transload throughput sale to Spirit Airlines at Harry Reid airport with assistance from Strataflex Midstream

U.S. Energy recently completed its first jet fuel throughput sale at its rail transload facility and refined products bulk plant in northern Las Vegas.

Jet fuel partner Strataflex Midstream, an industrial services business specializing in rail logistics and energy-related midstream services, aided the transaction, receiving product from U.S. Energy and then delivering it to Spirit Airlines at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, the companies reported.

“This marks our introduction to the Las Vegas jet fuel market,” Allison Robinson, U.S. Energy reginal supply and trading manager, said in a news release. “With our transloader officially running, we’re excited to provide jet fuel throughput to Strataflex, simplifying its logistical needs. We pride ourselves on offering tailored solutions and can do so in this market through our 60-plus railcar capacity and ability to expand tankage for jet fuel and AVGAS, among other fuel types.”

U.S. Energy, a vertically integrated energy solutions provider, offers organizations more than rail transload facility and storage capacity. It also provides fixed forwards, hedging and risk management services, CAPEX and project engineering, and pipeline interconnects, solving for larger-scale financing and infrastructure constraints.

“By working alongside the U.S. Energy team and partnering with Union Pacific Railroad, we were able to complete the loop between our supply partners and our launch customer, Spirit Airlines,” said Patrick Dial, Strataflex president and CEO. “This first rail delivery of jet fuel into Las Vegas represents a change in the way excess pipeline demand will be transported to the market, offering newfound [and ongoing] supply line and supplier diversity in a manner that is safer, greener, and way more efficient than through long-haul trucking and other alternatives.”
