Williston Basin Interstate Pipeline Co., the wholly owned natural gas transmission pipeline subsidiary of MDU Resources Group, Inc., plans to expand its existing natural gas pipeline capacity by 33% in the Bakken production area in northwestern North Dakota.
The expansion would add up to 30 MMcf/d to existing volumes from Bakken for delivery to Northern Border Pipeline. The expansion will be accomplished by adding facilities to an existing compressor station in northwestern North Dakota. The targeted in-service date is November 2011.
An open season for the Bakken Expansion Project was held from May 19-June 2, 2010. Open season documents are available on Williston Basin’s website at www.wbip.com.
