MDU Resources Group Inc.’s is planning to bring online later this year a 21-mile, 12-inch diameter natural gas pipeline to serve a manufacturing facility in Gwinner, ND, and other nearby potential customers, CEO Dave Goodin said during a fourth quarter conference call.Much, much more at the link, including an update on their wind farm activity (FWIW).
The new pipeline comes as Bismarck, ND-based MDU transported a record volume of natural gas -- up 9.6% year/year -- through its system in 2017, partly because of completing two expansion projects that increased pipeline capacity by 62 Mcf/d.
The multi-state utility holding company expects to further boost its natural gas transportation capacity in 2018 to more than 1.8 Bcf/d after completing the 38-mile, 16-inch Valley Expansion project and the 13-mile, 24-inch Line Section 27 expansion project. Construction on both projects, which are headed up by MDU’s WBI Energy subsidiary, is expected to begin this spring.
“This business segment continues to seek additional growth projects to increase transportation capacity, including a continued focus on the Bakken, which is currently producing record volumes of natural gas,” Goodin said.
