SemCrude®, L.P., a subsidiary of SemGroup® Corporation (NYSE:SEMG), announced today the expansion of its Platteville, CO truck unloading terminal as part of an agreement with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation.

The expansion is expected to be complete by the end of 2012.
“Significant, increased demand continues for transporting crude through the White Cliffs Pipeline,” said Pete Schwiering, President of SemCrude. “We are excited about this expansion and working with Anadarko to meet its rising production needs.”
