Williston Basin states that due to the construction of a new bridge and the demolition of the Memorial Bridge, Williston Basin must relocate and abandon the section of pipeline attached to the Memorial Bridge. Specifically, Williston Basin requests authorization to construct approximately four miles of 16-inch diameter steel pipeline, install a new regulator station, reconfigure the operation of certain existing facilities, construct a mainline valve setting and a pig launcher-receiver, and abandon short segments of pipeline. Williston Basin estimates the cost of construction to be $3,100,000.

If no protest is filed within the time allowed therefore, the proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized effective the day after the time allowed for protest.
