Pipeline will bring natural gas to Wahpeton, Breckenridge, Kindred
BISMARCK, N.D. (KVRR/KCND) – Montana-Dakota Utilities and WBI Energy plan to build a natural gas pipeline extension to bring more natural gas to the Wahpeton-Breckenridge area.
MDU Spokesman Mark Hanson says the 60 mile extension will run from Mapleton to Wahpeton and will also bring natural gas to Kindred. Currently, Wahpeton-Breckenridge is served by Great Plains Natural Gas, an MDU subsidiary, through a pipeline on the Minnesota side.
Hanson says the company plans to start construction on the $60 million project in early 2024 and have it finished by later that year.
The estimated cost of the pipeline is $75 million.
