McKenzie County gas processing plant expansion approved

 Nov 27 2018

An expansion of a natural gas processing plant received a green light from the North Dakota Public Service Commission on Monday, but regulators ordered the company to minimize noise and light impacts for neighboring landowners.

The commission voted unanimously to approve Kinder Morgan’s application to expand the Roosevelt Gas Plant in McKenzie County, a $150 million project.

The current plant about 7½ miles south of Watford City processes 50 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Hiland Partners Holdings, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, plans to construct an additional plant at the same location to process another 150 million cubic feet per day.
