Listen: Uinta Basin project looks to reverse declining production of Utah's waxy crude

The Uinta Basin in Utah is the producing area of the US Rocky Mountains. Its production has declined in recent years for two reasons: the region's isolation and the gooey, waxy crude produced from it.

We spoke with Mark Hemphill, senior vice president for the Rio Grande Pacific Corp. He is project manager for the Uinta Basin Railway, an 85-mile, $1.5 billion project to bring Uinta Basin crude to a connecting point with two Class I railroads near Kyune Pass, Utah.
