WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Public Service Commission is holding a public hearing about a proposed natural gas plant near Watford City.

The June 18 hearing will look at a $280 million gas plant proposed by Tulsa, Oklahoma-based ONEOK Rockies Midstream LLC. The proposed facility would be able to process 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day and would be located about 13 miles southwest of Watford City.

ONEOK's plan calls for construction to begin on July 1 and for the project to be completed by the end of 2015.

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.
