The Garden Creek II plant can process 100 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, a news release from the company said.

The processing plant is expected to help reduce the flaring of natural gas in the Bakken. Natural gas is a byproduct of oil production, but unless there are pipelines to gather it and plants to process, it may go to waste by being burned off at the wellsite.
