This is great news.  Should help cut down on the crazy high levels of flaring gas in North Dakota

Gas pipeline, processing plant proposed in North Dakota

A Colorado company has proposed a 70-mile natural gas pipeline to a planned processing plant in western North Dakota, bringing to six the number of similar facilities scheduled to come online by the end of next year.

Denver-based Outrigger Energy II said its pipeline would originate in Williams County and end at the plant proposed near Williston, the biggest city in the state's oil patch.  ...


...  North Dakota, the nation's No. 2 oil producer behind Texas, flared about 546 million cubic feet of natural gas daily in October, the most recent data available, said Justin Kringstad, director of the North Dakota Pipeline Authority.

Regulators said companies flared 18% of all gas in October, which is well above the 12% target imposed by the state.  ...


...  Planned gas processing expansion by Outrigger and five other companies will increase the processing capacity an additional 1 billion cubic feet daily by the end of 2021, Kringstad said.

He added that those six projects represent an investment of more than $3 billion.

"There is a lot of investment," Kringstad said. "I'm expecting to see the needle move noticeably on increased gas capture soon."
