In 2007, the North Dakota State Legislature created the North Dakota Pipeline Authority to assist development of pipeline facilities to support energy-related commodities.
There are more than 7,000 miles of transmission and distribution pipelines in North Dakota. The ND Pipeline Authority reports that crude oil pipeline projects in planning stages or under construction could add 950,000 bpd of shipping capacity. See a list of all the projects at the ND Pipeline Authority website.
North Dakota has four product pipelines, seven major crude oil pipelines, five major natural gas pipelines, and one carbon dioxide pipeline.
The United States has the largest network of pipelines in the world.
