BTSC states that the four customers are Phillips 66 Company (Phillips), Infineum USA L.P., Veolia North America Regeneration Services, LLC, and Solutia Inc. According to BTSC, it is seeking this modified certificate so that it can provide common carrier switching services should anyone request such service in the future. BTSC states that the Agreement has a term of five years subject to extensions by agreement of the parties. BTSC further states that Phillips is entering into an agreement with the state of New Jersey, which will give Phillips custody of the Line.3 1 BTSC is a subsidiary of Watco Transportation Services, L.L.C., which, in turn, is a subsidiary of Watco Holdings, Inc. 2 The Line, along with other rail lines, was previously operated by the Morristown & Erie Railway, Inc.
