BISMARCK, N.D. — A Houston company is proposing a pipeline to move up to 75,000 barrels of crude daily from North Dakota's booming oil patch.
Plains All American Pipeline LP says the 103-mile Bakken North Pipeline would run from Trenton in northwest North Dakota, through northeast Montana and to the U.S.-Canada border. There, it would link to an existing pipeline system capable of carrying crude to major supply hubs in Oklahoma and Illinois.
North Dakota Pipeline Authority Director Justin Kringstad says the state's oil shipping capacity is barely keeping pace with production. He calls the company's proposal good news.
