CSX Transportation has presented its Partnershipping Award to the Regional 
Economic Development Partnership (RED) in Wheeling, W.Va., for its efforts 
in locating three energy-related projects that will be served by CSX.

CSX noted that the Wheeling organization also supported state legislation 
providing incentives for energy companies investing in the state.

 The award was presented to RED by Clark Robertson, CSX’s assistant vice 
president-Regional Development. He said RED was among many groups working 
to bring Dominion Energy to Natrium, Caiman Energy to Moundsville, and AES 
Drilling Fluids to Benwood, W.Va. 

The facilities are expected to generate an estimated 9,250 carloads of 
freight annually for CSX.

“The RED team worked quickly and consistently to engage CSX Regional 
Development as a partner in helping create more economic opportunity for the 
region,” said Robertson. “CSX was ready, willing, and pleased to help. Our 
entire team looks forward to doing more work with the Regional Economic 
Development Partnership and to helping the area benefit from the continuing
 development of the Marcellus Shale area.”
