Alliance Wins FERC Approval For Tioga Lateral Pipeline

November 2012, Vol. 239 No. 11

With a green light from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Alliance Pipeline is moving ahead with construction preparations for its Tioga Lateral Pipeline project in North Dakota.

The FERC approved the 79.3 mile, 12-inch lateral pipeline to connect new natural gas production from the Williston Basin to the Alliance mainline in North Dakota. The gas will then be shipped to the Chicago market hub. Planned in-service timing for the pipeline is next summer.
