Wind Ridge Project Overview
WBI Energy Wind Ridge Pipeline, LLC (WBI Energy) is proposing to build, operate and maintain the Wind Ridge Pipeline Project. This project represents approximately 96-miles of 20-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline between a tie-in along Northern Border Pipeline Company’s existing mainline near Zeeland, North Dakota, and a fertilizer production facility being proposed by CHS, Inc. near Spiritwood, North Dakota. The new pipeline facilities will transport natural gas to the proposed fertilizer plant for manufacturing nitrogen fertilizer.
WBI Energy is proposing to construct affiliated facilities including a 1,000 horsepower compressor station to be located in Stutsman County along with some additional pipeline, metering, and valve settings. Northern Border Pipeline Company will construct and operate a meter station at the tie-in with their pipeline. The project map depicts the preliminary proposed pipeline route and the locations of some of these facilities.
The proposed pipeline would traverse McIntosh, Logan, LaMoure and Stutsman counties.
