Hardly any members of the public came to testify before the North Dakota Public Service Commission at a public hearing Monday at Killdeer City Hall regarding a proposed natural gas liquids pipeline that would run approximately 38 miles through Dunn and McKenzie counties. ONEOK Bakken Pipeline LLC, a subsidiary of Oklahoma-based ONEOK Inc., has applied for a permit for its Bear Creek NGL Pipeline Project, which would have an 8-inch diameter and would connect the ONEOK Bear Creek natural gas processing facility -- which is expected to finish construction north of Killdeer in September -- to the Bakken NGL pipeline south of Watford City. The estimated $45 million pipeline would carry a mixture of ethane, propane, butanes, iso-butane mix, pentanes and natural gasoline produced at the plant. Neset talks geology in ND Reclamation Conference keynote speech For Kathleen Neset, president of wellsite services company Neset Consulting Service, the story of the North Dakota oil economy is all about geology. Neset built her career on her expertise in the science and its ready application to energy extraction, and imparted some knowledge of the oilfield’s unique characteristics and impact on safety and reclamation efforts in her keynote speech for the North Dakota Reclamation Conference on Monday night in Dickinson. NDDOT cuts temporary workforce as gas taxes, other user revenues drop In another casualty of slumping crude oil prices, the North Dakota Department of Transportation is cutting back on temporary employees to help offset a projected $69 million shortfall in gas tax collections, registration fees and other user-based revenues, a spokeswoman said Monday. Department spokeswoman Peggy Anderson said the layoffs, reduced hours and unfilled vacancies are not related to the 4.05 percent budget cuts the DOT and other state agencies had to submit last week to help cover a projected $1.07 billion revenue shortfall for the 2015-17 biennium that began July 1.
