The US Bureau of Land Management has released an environmental assessment of Bakkenlink Production LLC’s proposed crude oil pipeline across North Dakota and will accept public comments on it through Sept. 15, the agency’s Dickinson, ND, field office said.
BLM said the proposed 12-in., 132-mile pipeline would extend from Beaver Lodge to Fryburg, and have a capacity of 65,000 b/d that could be expanded to 100,000 b/d. The line would follow existing pipeline and utility easements where possible, the field office’s notice said.
The US Department of the Interior agency was the designated federal lead in preparing the EA, with the US Forest Service and US Army Corps of Engineers as cooperating agencies, it noted.
Bakkenlink Production is a subsidiary of Houston-based Great Northern Midstream LLC, the EA said.
