Hearing Set for Continental EOR Project: Company to Use Natural Gas for Oil Recovery
Friday, May 27, 2022The ND Public Service Commission has scheduled a June 6 hearing in Williston on a permit application from Continental Resources to build 3.1 miles of pipeline to move natural gas to an existing oil well for an enhanced oil recovery pilot project.
The company's application was filed under proprietary cover, but indicates that Continental intends to move compressed gas in an eight-inch pipeline from the existing East Mon-Dak WBI Energy Transmission Line to Continental’s Buddy Domindgo well pad. The company estimates it will invest approximately $3.55 million in the pipeline. The work will occur in an area south of Highway 2 and just west of Epping in Williams County.
Continental indicates that construction will begin about two weeks after it obtains PSC approval and that the work will take approximately
two months to complete. The company's application indicates the pipeline will normally move 20 million cubic feet of gas per day, but would be capable of 30 million cubic feet.
The hearing is scheduled to get underway at 9:00 a.m. on June 6 at Williston City Hall. Click here to see the PSC meeting notice and a map of the project area.
