BERNALILLO, N.M. (AP) — A Texas company has withdrawn an application to transfer crude oil from tank trucks to rail cars at an industrial site in New Mexico.

Bernalillo (behr-nah-LEE'-yoh) Mayor Jack Torres says Dallas-based NuDeveCo Midstream Development began the application process for usage of a mothballed American Gypsum drywall plant in Bernalillo but later backed away.

The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/TPZtkQ ) reports that American Gypsum had a contract with BNSF Railway to use the siding.

Bernalillo residents and officials had voiced concerns about possible oil spills.
