Bakken Area Gas Gathering System Planned

Posted on

Bear Tracker Energy, LLC says it has signed a definitive agreement with a large U.S. independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company to construct, own, operate and expand a natural gas gathering system that includes compression and other related facilities in the Bakken area of North Dakota. The associated natural gas production from 18 townships in Burke and Mountrail Counties, ND will be committed to BTE’s gathering system during the term of the agreement. BTE will gather, compress and deliver the natural gas for further handling at a Stanley, ND facility. Construction will commence in the first quarter of 2011 with operations estimated to start mid-year 2011.
