WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Public Service Commission is holding a public hearing in Stanley on a proposed oil pipeline conversion.

Targa Badlands LLC wants to convert a 31-mile-long gathering pipeline system between New Town and Stanley into a transmission pipeline. The pipeline would have a maximum capacity of about 48,000 barrels per day and transport oil to an Enbridge terminal near Stanley. It would cost about $41 million.

Gathering lines transport oil from wells to collection points. Larger transmission pipelines bring oil to rail or other pipeline networks so it can be transported for sale.

The Public Service Commission permits and regulates pipelines and a number of other businesses in the state.

The hearing will be held at Stanley's City Hall at 9 a.m. on Dec. 11.
