North Bakken Expansion Project Overview

WBI Energy's proposed North Bakken Expansion Project involves approximately 60 miles of new 20-inch diameter natural gas pipeline that will connect WBI Energy’s Tioga Compressor Station near Tioga, North Dakota, with Northern Border Pipeline Company’s mainline at a new interconnection point south of Watford City, North Dakota. WBI Energy also will construct a new compressor station, the Elkhorn Compressor Station, near the new interconnection point. The project also includes constructing approximately 20 miles of new 12-inch diameter natural gas pipeline between the company’s Tioga Compressor Station and an existing receipt station, adding compression horsepower at the Tioga Compressor Station and installing associated pipeline and measurement facilities. The cost of the North Bakken Expansion Project is estimated to be approximately $220 million, based on the current design. 

Project maps show the preliminary pipeline route and the locations of the proposed facilities.

The proposed North Bakken Expansion Project is expected to provide at least an additional 200 million cubic feet per day of natural gas takeaway capacity for the Bakken, which will help reduce natural gas flaring in the area.

Assuming environmental and regulatory approval are received, construction on the project is expected to begin in early 2021 and be completed in late 2021.
