Regulators approve $1.8M pipeline project in North Dakota

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Regulators have approved a $1.8 million natural gas pipeline project in northwestern North Dakota.

ONEOK Rockies Midstream plans to convert an existing natural gas gathering pipeline and a portion of another gathering pipeline into a natural gas liquids transmission line.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the state Public Service Commission approved the Cherry Creek Pipeline project Monday, saying it will provide a safer transportation option and help reduce the wasteful flaring of excess natural gas in the oil patch.

The project will move up to 50,000 barrels of natural gas liquids from a gas processing plant in McKenzie County to a plant in Williams County, where it will go into the Bakken Pipeline.

The Cherry Creek Pipeline crosses the Missouri River and has shut-off valves on both sides of the crossing.
