Dalrymple calls 2nd ND pipeline summit in Bismarck

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Gov. Jack Dalrymple and industry leaders are holding a meeting in Bismarck to learn more about the future of pipelines in North Dakota.

The summit is slated Tuesday at Bismarck State College's National Energy Center of Excellence.

Dalrymple hosted a similar event two years ago that was attended by more than 100 industry and government officials.

North Dakota is the nation's No. 2 oil producer behind Texas. The state is producing about 1 million barrels a day but about 70 percent is being moved by rail, as producers increasingly have turned to trains to reach U.S. refineries where premium prices are fetched.

Dalrymple says more pipelines will reduce truck traffic, curb natural gas flaring and create more markets for the state's oil and natural gas.
