Hoeven: Gas pipeline making progress

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Sen. John Hoeven says natural gas pipeline proposed by a Canadian company in western North Dakota is making progress.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Sen. John Hoeven says natural gas pipeline proposed by a Canadian company in western North Dakota is making progress.

Calgary-based Alliance Pipeline announced the $141 million project last summer. Alliance says the 79-mile pipeline will run from a gas plant in Tioga to Sherwood, where it will meet with the company's existing natural gas line that moves the gas to Chicago.

Alliance spokesman Rob Gray says federal regulators have been reviewing the project since January. Hoeven says he met recently with pipeline officials, who say the pipeline could be completed in the third quarter of next year.

The project is just one of about $3 billion in infrastructure improvements that are planned in North Dakota to process natural gas and move it to market.
