BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota regulators have approved siting permits for two crude oil pipelines and a natural gas liquids pipeline.
ONEOK Bakken Pipeline LLC plans a 14.4-mile natural gas liquids pipeline in McKenzie County. BOE Pipeline LLC plans a 41.8-mile crude oil pipeline in Dunn and McKenzie counties, and Plains Terminals North Dakota LLC is planning a 3.5-mile crude oil pipeline in McKenzie County.
The 3.5-mile pipeline will start at the Plains Johnsons Corner Terminal and end at the Dakota Access Pipeline Johnsons Corner Terminal Facility. From that terminal, the oil can be transported across the country.
North Dakota Public Service Commission Chairwoman Julie Fedorchak says the three projects have been carefully examined by experts, discussed thoroughly with the public and meet the requirements for permits under state law.
