ABOUT WBI ENERGY
Much like a train delivers cargo for its customers, WBI Energy delivers natural gas to customers who arrange to receive it. We don’t buy or sell natural gas. Our customers generally are local distribution companies, such as natural gas utilities that serve homes and businesses, or industrial facilities that use natural gas to fuel their operations. Our customers also include natural gas producers, power plants and marketing companies.
WBI Energy is a subsidiary of MDU Resources Group, Inc. (NYSE: MDU), a Fortune 500 company that is Building a Strong America® by providing essential products and services through its regulated energy delivery and construction materials and services businesses.
STORAGE and SUPPLY
Two 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 14 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.
NEARLY 100 YEARS OF SERVICE
WBI Energy’s roots go back to the 1920s when several short-haul pipelines were needed to transport newly developing supplies of natural gas to a central electric power plant in eastern Montana. Since that time, WBI Energy has grown its services and territory to include approximately 3,800 miles of natural gas transmission pipeline spanning portions of Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
