BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Public Service Commission has slated a public hearing for a proposed $85 million ethane pipeline in Divide and Williams counties.

The meeting is slated for Thursday in Williston for the planned 47-mile-long pipeline proposed by Vantage Pipeline US.

The pipeline would start near Williston and connect to an existing Vantage ethane pipeline system near Stady. The Vantage pipeline supplies ethane to petrochemical facilities located in Alberta, Canada.

Ethane is colorless and odorless and extracted from raw natural gas. It’s used to make plastics and for welding, was well as an anesthetic and an agent for ripening fruit.
