WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Public Service Commission says a permit to convert a 197-mile long oil gathering line into a transmission pipeline has been approved.

The commission made the announcement about the $55 million Hiland Crude, LLC project Wednesday.

The approval is conditional on the company securing waivers from five residences that are located within 500 feet of the pipeline. Under North Dakota law, transmissions within 500 feet of residences must be avoided unless a waiver is secured from the residence’s owner.

The pipeline will have a maximum capacity of 65,000 barrels per day and will link crude oil gathering systems to larger pipelines and rail networks to transport oil out of state to market.

Gathering pipelines transport oil or gas from wells to transmission pipelines or processing facilities.
