KILLDEER—A new natural gas processing facility north of Killdeer has been completed and is running at 50 percent capacity, officials say.
The Bear Creek natural gas processing facility, which was built and is run by ONEOK, will process 80 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.
Construction on the approximately plant—which is estimated at costing between $265 million and $375 million, though final numbers have not been disclosed—was completed in August and will be processing natural gas produced in the Bakken shale formation.
Dunn County Commissioner Daryl Dukart said he believes the facility is a positive for both the Killdeer community and Dunn County.
“It’s a long-range plant that will produce gas for many communities and I would think sometime in the future it would expand and even grow,” he said.
