North Dakota PSC gives Bridger OK for 77-mile oil pipeline

BISMARCK, N.D. - Construction will begin during the first week in October on a 77-mile crude oil pipeline project spanning McKenzie, Dunn and Billings counties after the state’s Public Service Commission gave the final OK during a meeting on Sept. 22.

Bridger Pipeline, LLC received the approval from the PSC to construct Four Bears Pipeline, a 12-inch thick steel pipeline system capable of handling 60,000 b/d with the possibility of moving to 110,000 b/d.

The pipeline would begin about 15 miles west of the Four Bears Bridge in McKenzie County, just north of state Highway 23, according to PSC documents.

The pipeline’s southern end would then connect into Bridger’s existing Heart River Pipeline at Skunk Hill Junction located about 18 miles northwest of Dickinson.
