U.S. Pipeline Project Continues
A natural gas company has confirmed plans to build a new processing plant near Watford City in western North Dakota.
Bear Paw Energy told the state Public Service Commission it intends to file a construction application for the project next month. The new plant will cost about $175 million to build, and will be able to process about 100 million cubic feet of gas daily.
Natural gas production in western North Dakota has been rising as oil production goes up.
Public Service Commissioner Tony Clark said several pipeline and gas processing ventures have been built or are under development to handle the production increase.
Amerada Hess and Whiting Petroleum are among the companies that have expanded their ability to transport or process natural gas.
