Alliance completes Tioga Lateral natural gas pipeline

Alliance Pipeline has finished construction on its 80-mile, 12-in. natural gas pipeline in western North Dakota. The project cost $170 million and took a year to complete.

The Tioga Lateral line originates from a Hess Corp. gas processing facility near Tioga, ND, and connects to the Alliance mainline near Sherwood, ND. The line is capable of moving 126 MMcfd of rich natural gas, which is produced in association with oil production in the Williston basin.

Alliance said the line gives operators in Williston access to downstream markets through the Chicago hub, including the Aux Sable NGL fractionation facility. The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission gave approval for the lateral in September 2012 (OGJ Online, Oct. 1, 2012).

“This state-of-the-art pipeline will help us reduce flaring, add value to our natural resources, and support our nation’s energy security,” commented North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple.

Based in the US and Canada, the 2,300-mile Alliance Pipeline natural gas transmission system has been in commercial service since 2000 and delivers 1.6 bscfd of gas (OGJ Online, Nov. 30, 2000).
