WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Public Service Commission is holding a hearing in Williston later this month about a proposal to transform an oil gathering pipeline into a transmission line.

Meadowlark Midstream Company LLC wants to convert a 43.5-mile-long gathering pipeline that goes through Williams and Divide counties into a transmission line. The transmission line would take oil from a planned pump station in Divide County to the Colt Rail Terminal in Williams County and carry an estimated 35,000 barrels of oil a day. The project would cost $3.5 million.

The public meeting will be held at Williston’s City Hall starting at 9 a.m. on Sept. 30.

The PSC regulates pipelines and other business activities in the state.
