North Dakota regulators approve natural gas pipeline permit


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota regulators have approved a siting permit for a natural gas liquids pipeline project in the western part of the state.

The state Public Service Commission says in a release that ONEOK Bakken Pipeline, LLC, will build the 77-mile long pipeline that will start at the company’s natural gas processing plant in McKenzie County and connect with another pipeline in Richland County, Montana. The project is estimated to cost $125 million.

The 20-inch steel pipeline is designed to carry a maximum of 1,680,000 gallons per day.

PSC Commissioner Julie Fedorchak says the project attempts to minimize impact to landowners and the environment by combining the line with an existing pipeline corridor for 51 of the 77 total miles.
