A pipeline that will move ethane from a Hess processing plant in Tioga, North Dakota, to Canada has been approved by the U.S. State Department.
The Vantage Pipeline will stretch 430 miles from Tioga, North Dakota, to Alberta, Canada, where it will deliver ethane to petrochemical plants. Approximately 80 miles of the pipeline will be located in North Dakota.
The pipeline will take several hundred thousand man hours and more than $300 million to build. Capacity is expected to be 40,000-60,000 b/d.
