WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Public Service Commission is holding a public hearing in Williston to discuss a proposed crude oil transmission pipeline.

Enid, Oklahoma-based Hiland Crude wants to convert a 197-mile long crude oil gathering pipeline into a transmission pipeline. Gathering lines are pipelines that transport oil or gas from a well to a collection point. The larger transmission pipeline will bring oil to rail and other pipeline networks so it can be transported for sale.

The $55.3 million project will have a maximum capacity of 65,000 barrels of oil per day.

The Public Service Commission is a state body that permits and regulates power plants, pipelines, railroads and a number of other businesses in the state.

The public hearing will take place Tuesday at 10 a.m.
