As of August 28, 2013, the Tioga Lateral Pipeline and facilities were commissioned and prepared for commercial service. The pipeline was formally made available for commercial in-service on September 1, 2013.
The scope of the project included building an 80-mile length of 12-inch diameter pipeline. Additionally, facilities associated with the project included a meter station and compressor stations adjacent to producer facilities. The new pipeline runs from an existing gas processing facility near Tioga, North Dakota and ties in to the existing Alliance mainline near Sherwood, North Dakota.
The pipeline will provide rich gas transportation infrastructure to move 126.4 million cubic feet (mmcf) of gas per day. The gas that the lateral pipeline ships is produced in association with oil production throughout the Williston Basin; gas that might otherwise be flared or vented into the atmosphere due to a previous shortage of pipeline infrastructure. The Tioga Pipeline ensures that this important source of clean-burning natural gas is transported to markets where it is needed.
Alliance remains focused on clean-up, restoration and monitoring activities along the pipeline right-of-way. Important reclamation activities will continue throughout the fall and into spring. Alliance will also continue to meet with landowners and affected public as the Tioga Lateral Pipeline begins operations.
