PSC to hold hearing on natural gas pipeline

The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold a public hearing in Grassy Butte on Monday, May 14, regarding a proposal to build a Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) Pipeline system in McKenzie, Billings and Stark Counties. The hearing will be held at 9 a.m. Mountain (10 a.m. Central) at the Grassy Butte Community Hall.
Andeavor Field Services, LLC, has submitted an application for a permit to build a $46 million NGL pipeline system consisting of approximately 44 miles of new 6-inch and 8-inch steel pipelines. The project would consist of three separate pipeline segments: (1) “North Segment” consisting of 17 miles of 8-inch pipeline in McKenzie County; (2) “South Segment” consisting of 22 miles of 8-inch pipeline starting in Billings County and ending in Stark County; and (3) the “Product Transfer Segment” consisting of approximately 5 miles of four separate 6-inch pipelines starting in Stark County and ending in Billings County. The North and South segments will interconnect using approximately 42 miles of the previously permitted BakkenLink Pipeline.
