ONEOK, an energy company that specializes in the gathering, processing, storage and transportation of natural gas is investing approximately $605 million to $785 million to build a 200-million cubic feet natural gas processing facility (The Demicks Lake plant) in northeast McKenzie County. The project also allocates for a 12 mile-long natural gas liquids gathering pipeline from the plant to the existing Bakken pipeline.
“The Demicks Lake plant and additional natural gas compression will increase our natural gas processing capacity in areas that continue to be developed aggressively by crude-oil and natural gas producers,” said Terry K. Spencer, President/CEO of ONEOK Partners. “The additional 300 MMcf/d in the Williston Basin will increase our natural gas processing capacity to approximately 1.1 billion cubic feet per day in the region. Pending board approval, we expect to announce additional Williston Basin natural gas processing capacity by the end of this year.”
