Another Large Natural Gas Pipeline Project For North Dakota; To Provide Natural Gas To Bobcat's Largest Facility In The US -- June 17, 2017

From the newspaper that everyone in Williston follows, The Miami Herald: North Dakota regulators move a new natural gas project forward. Data points:
  • MDU natural gas project will benefit two ND counties and one manufacturing facility in Gwinner, ND
  • the project: a 12-inch, 21-mile long pipeline
  • estimated cost: $14 million
  • Ransom and Sargent Counties
  • will initially provide natural gas to the Bobcat facility in Gwinner
  • Gwinner's Bobcat manufacturing and product engineering complex: Bobcat's largest in the US
  • project will have capacity to expand to other potential customers located along the proposed route
  • it will not result in a rate increase for other MDU customers
Had the Bobcat facility been located in Minnesota, we would be reading about a $30 billion wind and solar project subsidized by the taxpayers.

    1. My estimate has always been $1 million / mile -- pipeline or highway. Seems to always be in the ballpark. So this one is actually a bit less expensive than I estimated.

    2. Good catch; my typographical error. $14 million, NOT $14 billion. LOL. Sorry. Thank you for catching that.
