PSC sets hearing for pipeline project in McKenzie County

BISMARCK – The North Dakota Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing on March 22, regarding a proposal to covert an existing pipeline to a transmission line and construct a new portion of pipeline in McKenzie County.

Bridger Pipeline LLC is proposing to convert about 27 miles of existing pipeline from a crude oil gathering line to a transmission line, along with constructing about 2.4 miles of new eight-inch crude pipeline. No new installations will be required to convert the existing line. Maximum capacity of the pipeline will be 25,000 to 50,000 barrels per day. Estimated cost of the project is $21 million.

The project would transport crude oil from an existing terminal at Johnson’s Corner to Bridger’s existing Wilson Station, about 7 miles south of Watford City.

The hearing will be held at 8 a.m. in Teddy’s Residential Suites, Watford City. View the hearing online: https://psc.nd.gov/public/meetings/live.php or by phone at 1-888-585-9008, Room Code 259-316-322.
