State regulators will hold a public hearing over the proposed expansion of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Nov. 13 in Linton.

Scott Hennen is talking with local, regional and national leaders on this expansion, leading up to the hearing on Nov. 13th.

The North Dakota Public Service Commission received numerous requests for a hearing on pipeline operator Energy Transfer’s plan to build a pump station in Emmons County. The facility would add horsepower to send more oil through the line, which runs from North Dakota to Illinois. Energy Transfer wants to nearly double the line’s existing capacity to accommodate up to 1.1 million barrels of oil per day to meet growing demand from shippers in the Bakken.
