BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Houston-based gas company has announced plans to build a new plant near Ross, N.D., that could process up to 75 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that Plains All American Pipeline announced the project Friday.

The company's subsidiary, Plains Gas Solutions, will operate the plant, which is expected to be completed in spring 2013.

It's not immediately clear how many jobs will be created.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple says he applauds the development of the new plant.

He says, "We are making remarkable progress in the capturing and processing of North Dakota's natural gas."

The Governor's Office says North Dakota's natural gas production increased 53 percent to 521 million cubic feet per day between January and November 2011.
