Pipeline Summit Addresses Expansions

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota's oil fields are producing more than a million barrels a day. And that means the state's pipeline system needs to expand and grow.

That was the message from Gov. Dalrymple at his pipeline summit today.

State leaders, energy companies and regulators discussed a wide range of issues from the need to reclaim land, as well as the importance of a relationship between a pipeline company and a landowner.

"In the last two years we have essentially more than doubled our pipeline capacity in a short period of time and now as we look ahead, especially after today we see the opportunity to increase another 50 percent over where we are today," says Gov. Dalrymple.

Democratic Agriculture Commissioner candidate Ryan Taylor and Public Service Commissioner candidates Tyler Axness and Todd Reisenauer, released a statement on the summit, saying that more oversight is needed.
