A long legacy of pipeline service
WBI Energy Transmission (formerly known as Williston Basin Interstate Pipeline Company) can trace its start in the pipeline business back to the 1920s when the fledging new corporation that would become MDU Resources Group needed several short-haul pipelines to transport newly developing supplies of natural gas to a central electric power plant in eastern Montana. The rest, as they say, is history.
WBI Energy Transmission now owns and operates more than 3,700 miles of natural gas transmission and gathering pipeline spanning major portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. The company also owns, leases and operates 33 compressor stations in this area.
Three underground storage fields in Montana and Wyoming provide storage services to local distribution companies, producers, natural gas marketers and others, and serve to enhance system deliverability.
WBI Energy Transmission’s system is strategically located near five natural gas-producing basins, making natural gas supplies available to the company's transportation and storage customers. The system has 13 interconnecting points with other pipeline facilities, allowing for the receipt and/or delivery of natural gas to and from other regions of the country and from Canada.
