The North Dakota Public Service Commission unanimously approved a siting permit for a pump station that will facilitate the expansion of the Dakota Access Pipeline.



Pipeline operator Energy Transfer Partners will now look to build a $40 million pump station about five miles from Linton in Emmons County that would make it possible to increase the capacity of the pipeline from 570,000 to 1.1 million barrels of oil (23.9 million to 46.2 million gallons) per day. The company has said it will aim to begin construction on the pump station this spring and finish about 10 months later.
