BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A Wyoming company is seeking permits and landowner permission to expand its pipeline network to carry crude from that state and North Dakota to a hub in Cushing, Oklahoma.
The Bismarck Tribune reports Casper-based Bridger Pipeline LLC launched a website this week with information for landowners and others.
The proposed Bridger Expansion project included two separate oil pipelines. One straddles North Dakota and Montana and another is in Wyoming.
The 137-mile North Dakota-Montana “South Bend” line will carry up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day from in McKenzie County in North Dakota to Baker, Montana.
The 191-mile Wyoming “Equality” will transport up to 200,000 barrels of oil per day from Hulett to Guernsey, Wyoming.
The company says it hopes to have both lines in service by late 2021.
