I feel bad for the guy. You cringe while watching it. Obviously he got nervous and flustered which caused him to unfortunately word things poorly. But it is still rather humorous. :lol:

I saw this last night.  I didn't realize he went to NDSU but it makes sense.

George Sores and Moveon.org are funding these protesters around the country.  Not sure if they did in his case.  if they did George will want his money back.

I think this is the guy who basically called Bismarck (paraphrasing) a bunch of racists (reading between the lines because he now lives in big bad liberal Fargo)....couple articles about him organizing the protest few weeks ago including rob ports say anything blog.

Meridian Energy has signed several construction, sourcing, and distribution contracts for its new Belfield diesel refinery.  That plant could be producing as early as next year.  Looks like a new normal for the Bakken, as oil just went above $54 per barrel so several Bakken oil companies have doubled their drilling forecasts.

The expansion of a Watford City gas plant by Oasis Midstream will make it the largest such facility in the Bakken, exceeding the Hess plant in Tioga.  Hess separates it's Nat Gas Liguids into components like ethane and propane, which might come later for this plant.  Watford City will continue to see growth from nat gas, and the drilling is mostly happening in McKenzie County.

A major job addition like this would have been state-wide news before Bakken.

Interesting story on the need for more ND gas processing plants.  OneOK postponed a major new plant in McKenzie County when oil prices dipped.  Crestwood and Oasis built their plants anyway.  ND needs downstream nat gas plant's, like the GF fertilizer plant and the ethane cracker plant to actually be built.

ND oil and gas production are at record levels and there is a record amount of unfracked wells to be completed.

A $3.5 billion propane cracker plant was just announced for Alberta, which will be the first in Canada.  There is an ethane pipeline from Tioga to Alberta and it would make sense if that pipeline was converted to propane now and an ethane cracker was built near Williston.  All the gas plants could feed into a separation central facility with their C2s and higher.  The C3s go to Alberta, the C4s and higher on an existing pipeline to Houston, and the C2 get consumed right there.
