Kinder Morgan announced that the company is evaluating how much more capacity it will need to expand the Hiland Crude system based on the level of interest and the volume commitments it secures.
It's the third announcement of a major pipeline project in the state over the past month for carrying more Bakken oil out of North Dakota.
Currently, Hiland Crude system carries 88,000 barrels of oil each day from McKenzie County to Wyoming. From a hub there, Tallgrass Express transports up to 375,000 barrels per day to three refineries and a terminal in Oklahoma with its Pony Express Pipeline.
Tallgrass may also consider expanding the Pony Express line, Kinder Morgan spokeswoman Katherine Hill told the Bismarck Tribune.
