WBI Energy To Build Wind Ridge Pipeline In North Dakota

Posted on

WBI Energy Wind Ridge Pipeline LLC (WBI Energy) is proposing to build, operate and maintain the Wind Ridge Pipeline project. This project represents approximately 95-miles of 16-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline between a tie-in along Northern Border Pipeline Co.’s existing mainline near Ashley, ND, and a fertilizer production facility being proposed by CHS Inc. near Spiritwood, ND. The new pipeline facilities will transport natural gas to the proposed fertilizer plant for manufacturing agricultural nitrogen fertilizer.
  As currently proposed, the new pipeline will not require the construction of a compressor station; however, WBI Energy will construct a meter station at the site of the plant. Mainline valves will be constructed every 10 to 12 miles and three pig launchers will be evenly spaced along the pipeline route. Northern Border Pipeline Company will construct and operate a meter station at the tie-in with their pipeline.
  The company filed with the FERC in February 2015 and construction is slated for summer 2016.
