Tri-State requests authorization to abandon its certificate authorizing Tri-State to operate an approximately 10.5 miles long pipeline from an interconnect with the interstate pipeline facilities of Alliance Pipeline L.P. in Richland County, North Dakota, to the Tri-State's ethanol facility near Rosholt, in Roberts County, South Dakota (the Delivery Line). Red River requests a new certificate authorizing Red River to own and operate the Delivery Line on the same terms and conditions as the certificate previously issued to Tri-State. Since Red River acquired and commenced service through the Delivery Line on December 12, 2011, Red River also requests a temporary certificate, retroactively effective on December 12, 2011.
