Provider of refined products, alternative fuels, and environmental credits, U.S. Energy acquired two refined product terminals in Mount Prospect and Rockford, Illinois.

Josh Hermus, vice president of business development at U.S. Energy says: ‘This acquisition complements our existing footprint in the Midwest. While we already have a presence in Illinois from a renewable natural gas development and distribution standpoint, these terminals are our first owned and operated refined product assets in the state—allowing us to better serve our customers and partners in PADD 2 markets.’

Each terminal is fed by pipeline with Mount Prospect receiving product from the West Shore pipeline (which also feeds the company’s Milwaukee terminals), and Rockford receiving product from the Badger pipeline (which also feeds the company’s Madison terminals).

‘We are excited to welcome four legacy employees from these facilities to the U.S. Energy team. Across our terminal network, we pride ourselves on our customer service, safety record, site uptime, and throughput turnaround. We are confident these team members will help us replicate this at our new locations,’ adds Dan Morrill, vice president of operations at U.S. Energy.
