Bakken spur to Keystone pipeline planned

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Houston company wants to ship North Dakota oil through a proposed pipeline that would carry Canadian crude to the Gulf of Mexico.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Houston company wants to ship North Dakota oil through a proposed pipeline that would carry Canadian crude to the Gulf of Mexico.

Quintana Capital Group says it wants to build a $250 million, 300-mile-long pipeline system from western North Dakota to eastern Montana, where it would meet TransCanada Corp.'s proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

TransCanada spokesman Terry Cunha says no agreement has been reached with Quintana or any other company wanting to ship domestic crude in the Canadian company's pipeline. But discussions are under way.

Quintana says its pipeline would initially carry 100,000 barrels of crude from the Watford City area to Montana's Fallon County, where it also could be linked with pipelines that carry Montana crude.
