The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) approved the siting permit for the Bakken Oil Express Pipeline between Killdeer and Dickinson. With the permit, construction can begin immediately.
The pipeline is expected to cost $14 million and replace as many as 825 tanker trucks per day on Highway 22.
The 16-inch, 38-mile pipeline will have capacity to move 165,000 b/d and could be built in as little as 12 weeks. The line will originate at a truck unloading and pumping facility near Killdeer and deliver oil to the existing Bakken Oil Express rail facility near Dickinson.
