MDU Resources Group says it is making progress on its project to build a natural gas pipeline from the existing pipeline system near Mapleton to the Viking Gas Transmission Company pipeline near Felton, Minnesota.
It would be a 38 mile, 16-inch diameter pipeline.
"It's been demand-driven from the start," said MDU Resources spokesman Tony Spilde. "We're getting requests for more natural gas on the system."
Spilde said this project is going to enhance reliability for local distribution companies, from Bismarck to the Viking system near Felton.
