ALLETE Energy Corridor

A comprehensive pathway for moving the rich and varied energy resources of North Dakota is the idea behind the ALLETE Energy Corridor. ALLETE Clean Energy is moving forward with plans to develop the concept which would provide for the movement of natural gas, petroleum products, water and wastewater, wind energy and future sequestered carbon.

The backbone of the energy corridor is an existing 465-mile path that contains a direct current transmission line running between Center, N.D., and Duluth, Minn. The energy corridor may parallel adjacent right of way along this existing path, as well as some 60 miles west to the Bakken shale oil fields. Various lengths of the corridor could be used for different purposes. An early focus for the corridor is to capture, transport and market the natural gas now being flared at hundreds of shale oil wells across North Dakota.
