The North Dakota Public Service Commission on Wednesday approved siting permits for three new pipeline projects – two crude oil pipelines and a natural gas liquids pipeline, one of which spans across Dunn County.
A proposed permit was approved for BOE Pipeline LLC’s 16-inch crude oil pipeline, which is slated to cross both Dunn and McKenzie counties at a total length of 41.8 miles.
The proposed pipeline will carry crude oil from an Area Custody Transfer meter near Johnson’s Corner to the BOE terminal near Killdeer, which is connected by an existing pipeline to the BOE Rail Hub located southwest of Dickinson.
The BOE Rail Hub is a loading facility that provides producers and marketers access to destinations served by local rail.
The pipeline will have a maximum capacity of 165,000 barrels per day. Total cost of the project is estimated at a cost of $55 million.
