BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A fiery oil train derailment in North Dakota is a reminder that oil trains now make a stop here in Whatcom County.

The BP Cherry Point refinery’s new crude oil terminal can receive up to a train a day.

It just became operational.

The Phillips 66 refinery in Ferndale is also planning on getting crude oil from trains in the near future.
