(Bismarck, ND) -- Plans for a 122-million dollar oil pipeline set to carry Bakken oil toward a Wyoming hub are moving forward.

The pandemic stalled the progress on the 145-mile South Bend Pipeline that will start in Johnsons Corner in McKenzie County. The pipeline is expected to transport 105-thousand barrels a day initially, with the potential for expansion.

The North Dakota Public Service Commission is set to hold a hearing on the project May 5th in Watford City.
