Hyundai Electric Motors Driving Ariel Compressors For Line Section 27 Expansion

WBI Energy Transmission Inc. (WBI Energy) is seeking Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval to construct and operate a new compressor station, tie-in facilities, and associated measurement facilities on its Line Section 27 located in McKenzie County, North Dakota, as part of its 2023 Line Section 27 Expansion project. The purpose of the project is to provide additional capacity necessary for the transportation of incremental natural gas volumes to WBI Energy’s Spring Creek interconnect with Northern Border Pipeline Company.

The proposed Spring Creek Compressor Station will consist of two 4000-hp (2948-kW) Hyundai electric motors driving Ariel KBZ/4 compressor units, a unit cooler and motor control center for each compressor unit, an auxiliary building, communication devices, and auxiliary facilities. It will be located near the NBPL-Spring Creek Interconnect on its North Badlands Sub-System.

WBI Energy is also proposing to install two 24-in. (610-mm) pipelines, each approximately 500 ft. (152 m) in length, from the proposed Spring Creek Compressor Station to WBI Energy’s existing Line Section 27 pipelines at the proposed Demicks Lake III Valve Setting.
