BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck-based energy company says it wants to build a roughly 38-mile pipeline to deliver natural gas supply to eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota.

WBI Energy Inc. said Monday that the expansion would cost an estimated $50 million.

The company, a subsidiary of MDU Resources Group Inc., says the project would connect a pipeline near Felton, Minnesota, to WBI Energy's pipeline near Mapleton, North Dakota.

David Goodin is president and CEO of MDU Resources. Goodin says the project would provide a source of natural gas to fuel industrial and commercial growth in the area.

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple expects benefits from the expansion.

The pipeline would initially be able to move 40 million cubic feet of natural gas daily. Once permitting and regulatory work is done, construction could start in 2018.
