Bridger Pipelines planning new line


August 29, 2019

Plans are underway for Bridger Pipeline to install a new oil pipeline that will travel through Crook County to match the route of the company’s existing line in this area.

“It will be parallel to our existing pipeline that goes through there called the Butte Pipeline,” says Ken Dockweiler, Bridger Pipelines.

“The proposed pipeline will start up around Hulett and come south and cross over into Weston County, eventually ending up in Guernsey, Wyoming.”

Within Crook County, the new pipeline will cross the Belle Fourche River downstream of Keyhole and continue south.

It’s early days in the project, Dockweiler says.

“We’re busy getting the permits and securing right-of-ways,” he says.

At the current time, there is not a projected date available for construction of the new oil pipeline to begin. Bridger Pipelines intends to keep the county commissioners up to date as the project progresses during their regular monthly meetings, Dockweiler says.
