Public hearing set on proposed $55 million oil pipeline

KILLDEER, N.D. (AP) — The public is getting a chance to weigh in on an oil pipeline proposed in McKenzie and Dunn counties.

The State Public Service Commission is holding a hearing Wednesday in Killdeer on the project proposed by BOE Pipeline LLC. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. Mountain time in City Hall.

Regulators say the 42-mile-long, 16-inch-diameter pipeline would carry crude from a new terminal near Johnson’s Corner to an existing terminal near Killdeer that’s connected by a pipeline to a rail hub southwest of Dickinson.

The $55 million pipeline would have the capacity to move 165,000 barrels of oil daily.
