Oneok announces new gas processing plant for Bakken core

Published: Feb 23 2018
WATFORD CITY, N.D. — Oneok announced this week it will construct a natural gas processing plant in McKenzie County, another project that will help North Dakota's oil and gas industry reduce flaring.

The proposed Demicks Lake plant will process 200 million cubic feet per day of natural gas northeast of Watford City, within the core of the Bakken where wells produce the most gas.

The project was approved by the North Dakota Public Service Commission in 2015, but Oneok suspended construction due to low commodity prices at the time.

The company's announcement that the Demicks Lake plant will move forward means North Dakota now has five natural gas processing plants or expansions that are under construction or in the planning stages.
