BISMARCK North Dakota (Reuters) – North Dakota intends to nearly double its oil and gas pipeline capacity within two years as part of a plan to curb the wasteful flaring of natural gas in the bustling Bakken oil field, the state’s governor said on Tuesday.
Oil production in North Dakota has more than tripled in the past decade to 1 million barrels of oil equivalent (boepd) per day, making for the fastest-growing U.S. state economy.
BISMARCK North Dakota (Reuters) – Enterprise Products Partners LP proposed on Tuesday to build a 340,000 barrel per day (bpd) pipeline to move shale oil from the Bakken formation, hoping to succeed where others have failed.
The 1,200-mile (1,900-km) pipeline will run to Cushing, Oklahoma, an oil storage hub and delivery point for U.S. crude benchmark futures. Enterprise aims to have the pipeline up and running by the end of 2016.
