Bridger Pipeline LLC announced an expansion of their crude oil pipelines in North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. The project will be done in two phases with the Wyoming portion of the project completed first and the North Dakota and Montana portion completed second.
The Equality Pipeline in Wyoming will traverse about 190 miles from Hulett south to Guernsey. The line will have a 20-inch diameter capable of moving as much as 200,000 barrels a day of crude oil. Bridger Pipeline plans to complete the Equality line in the Summer of 2020.
The South Bend Pipeline in North Dakota and Wyoming will run from Johnson Corner, North Dakota traveling southwest to Baker, Montana. The South Bend Pipeline will be about 137 miles long and the 16-inch line will be capable of carrying 150,000 barrels of crude oil a day. The South Bend Pipeline is scheduled for completion sometime in mid-2021.
“Our expansion will allow all producers in the Bakken region and in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin the ability to safely and quickly get their products to national and international oil markets,” said Tad True, executive Vice President of Bridger Pipeline.
