Proposed $650M pipeline would bring ND natural gas to Minnesota

Author:

Bismarck-based WBI Energy Inc. plans to build a 400-mile pipeline that would move natural gas from western North Dakota's booming oil fields to an existing pipeline in Moorhead, Minn., the Star Tribune reports.

The line could initially transport roughly 400 million cubic feet per day of natural gas and could be expanded to more than 500 million cubic feet per day.

"It's exciting to think that the proposed pipeline could provide a new transportation route to bring Bakken-produced natural gas directly to industrial customers and commercial and residential utility customers in eastern North Dakota," David Goodin, president and CEO of parent company MDU Resources, said in a news release. "Through interconnecting pipelines, the proposed pipeline could also serve Minnesota, Wisconsin and Midwest U.S. markets."

The company expects the project to cost between $650 million and $700 million.

The Associated Press notes about one-third of natural gas in North Dakota is burned off as an unwanted byproduct of crude production.
