Wahpeton Expansion Overview

The proposed Wahpeton Expansion Project will expand WBI Energy’s natural gas pipeline system in southeastern North Dakota. It will involve constructing approximately 60 miles of 12-inch diameter natural gas pipeline from WBI Energy’s existing Mapleton Compressor Station near Mapleton, North Dakota, to a new delivery station near Wahpeton, North Dakota. WBI Energy also will make minor modifications at the Mapleton Compressor Station and construct a new delivery station near Kindred, North Dakota.

The Wahpeton Expansion Project is estimated to cost approximately $75 million.

The proposed Wahpeton Expansion Project would allow WBI Energy to deliver an additional 20.6 million cubic feet of natural gas per day to southeastern North Dakota, particularly the cities of Wahpeton and Kindred. Pending regulatory approvals, WBI Energy anticipates starting construction in early 2024, with completion expected by November 2024.
