South Dakota Pipeline Operators

Intrastate Natural Gas Transmission Operators
These companies operate intrastate natural gas pipelines within South Dakota's borders. Their pipelines move natural gas from producers to local markets or specific projects.

Intrastate Natural Gas Distribution Operators – Municipal
Some South Dakota communities are served by a municipal natural gas utility. The city owns the utility to supply natural gas services to residents in that community. The local government entity manages the operation.

Intrastate Natural Gas Distribution Operators Investor-Owned
There are three investor-owned intrastate gas distribution operators that deliver natural gas to retail customers in specific geographic areas in South Dakota. These companies are owned by their investors and are managed as private enterprises.

Intrastate Natural Gas – Master Meter Operator
A master meter system distributes gas within a particular area, such as a mobile home park, where the operator purchases metered gas from an outside source for resale through a gas distribution pipeline system that supplies the ultimate consumer who either purchases the gas directly through a meter or by other means, such as by rents.
