BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Jack Dalrymple and a Duluth-based energy company are pushing the concept of an "energy corridor" that could move oil, natural gas, electricity and water out of the western part of North Dakota.
Dalyrmple and officials of Allete Inc. announced the concept on Wednesday. The idea is to establish a right of way adjacent to Allete's existing electric transmission line right of way in western North Dakota to Duluth, Minn.
Dalrymple and company officials say the corridor would consolidate and simplify the shipment of several energy sources along a single line.
Allete officials say they are working with other companies that are interested in the concept.
