BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have granted a temporary exemption from state natural gas flaring rules to a Denver-based company completing work on a natural gas processing plant.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1DAJ1tm ) that the Industrial Commission recently voted in favor of the exemption for Zavanna LLC, the majority partner in a joint venture called 1804 Ltd.

State Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms says 1804 Ltd. has nearly completed a gas plant northeast of Williston. The plant has a 64-mile underground natural gas gathering system in place.

Helms says the plant needs the exemption so it can purge the gas-gathering system prior to starting up the $90 million gas plant. He says the exemption will allow the company to flare until March 31 or until the plant starts up, whichever comes first.
