BISMARCK -- A North Dakota energy company plans to build two new natural gas processing plants northwest of Williston.

Bear Paw Energy is also planning construction of a 64-mile pipeline to carry natural gas liquids into Montana. Natural gas liquids include propane and butane.

Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer says the two plants will be capable of processing 200 million cubic feet of natural gas each day.

Cramer says the processing plants will cost about $275 million to build. The pipeline will cost about $24 million. It will be capable of carrying up to 65,000 barrels of natural gas liquids.

Cramer says the projects will cut down on natural gas waste. Almost one-quarter of the state's natural gas production is being burned off.
