Natural Gas Plant Expands in Watford City

Posted: Updated:

A natural gas processing company will build another plant in the state, right in the heart of the oil boom. ONEOK's Demicks Lake Natural Gas Processing Facility will process 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. The plant will be 15 miles northeast of Watford City.

"It's in the heart of a lot of development. And so we tend to build these plants in the area where of course the gas is being developed, and that's in the fairway of a lot of activity," says ONEOK CEO Terry Spencer.

"And it is all part of our very ambitious goal to capture 90 percent of all of our natural gas within the next 6 years," says Gov. Jack Dalrymple.

The project could cost up to $785 million, and is expected to be ready towards the end of 2016.
