Photos: Oil and Gas Development in North Dakota


April 2, 2012

Secretary Salazar toured oil and gas development operations on federal mineral estate in western North Dakota, where oil and gas production is rapidly expanding on federal, state, and private lands.  

Accompanied by U.S. Senators Kent Conrad and John Hoeven, and Congressman Rick Berg, Secretary Salazar visited a drilling rig actively producing oil from federal resources; toured a crude oil production facility where oil is processed, stored, and transported via truck, rail and pipelines to refineries across the country; met with federal employees and heard about the work they are doing to safely expand domestic oil and gas production in the region; and toured private housing accommodations for workers from across the country who come to North Dakota for high-paying jobs.
