WILLISTON, N.D. — Hess Corp. says it’s willing to do more inspections than required on proposed pipelines that would pass under Lake Sakakawea in northwestern North Dakota.
Hess North Dakota Pipelines LLC wants to build a crude oil pipeline and a natural gas liquids pipeline in McKenzie and Williams counties. Officials say they would connect Bakken production fields south of Lake Sakakawea to existing processing and truck facilities north of the lake.
The Williston Herald reports Hess officials said during a public hearing earlier this month in Williston that the project is critical to its plan to reduce flaring.
The estimated cost of the oil pipeline is $105 million. An estimate isn’t yet available for the gas pipeline.
The North Dakota Public Service Commission is deciding whether to approve the Hawkeye Pipeline Project.
