So, are there any pipelines expanding Williston Basin OIL takeaway capacity?

Since a poster posted this misinformed tidbit:
"an OIL PIPELINE, which does not justify the economics" in this post:
"Note this is an NGL PIPELINE , not an OIL PIPELINE, which does not justify the economics. Again, not matter how hard one tries, some people just don't get it."
It seems that there may be some misunderstanding about just how much oil is exiting the ND, MT, SD area from the Williston basin.
The details above were collected from the ND Pipeline Authority webpage.
