WSJ: Oil Booms in North Dakota

Recommended Posts

And Alaska payments got smaller this year; and Alaska makes payments to citizens because the oil is coming from public lands (where much of ND oil is coming from privates); and, don't forget Alaska's state budget is a mess (they were talking cutting UA/UAA athletics not that long ago).

Alaska has a 5 billion per year in oil tax revenue.  North Dakota  is pulling in $1.6 billion per year in oil tax revenue.

North Dakota has basically twice the "proven oil reserves" than Alaska. 

In 2016 (not sure if 2017 numbers are out yet), North Dakota produced 2.11 times the amount of oil Alaska did.

Since the new Ralph opened, the people of Alaska have been given over $20,000.

Is the oil tax in North Dakota too low?

Also the % of oil severance tax decreased as the price per barrel of oil came down.

I consider that a positive, your property assessed value might have gone up?

It’s been going up since I bought my house back in 2002

Alaska has a $40 billion trust fund and is pulling in $5 billion per year in oil tax revenue.  North Dakota has a $4 billion trust fund and is pulling in $1.6 billion per year in oil tax revenue.

Since we've struck it rich. Grand Forks has had to spend local $ to fix state roads. 

The big 2 have mucho cash flying around. Lot's of private $ being donated.

Some predictions have oil going to $80 / barrel by summer, as almost the entire world economy is growing fast.

Harold Hamm addressed students in Leonard Hall last week and told them Continental wanted more UND grads.  Kennedy was there at an unveiling and Hamm dropped the first puck at Friday's game against DU.  Maybe he'll give more if the stock goes up.

They didn't say anything about the pipelines. . . that has definitely helped the situation.  Protesters be damned. . .

True pipelines helped very much.

Damn.  This is a good way to chase investment dollars to Texas and other oilfields.  Oh and collect less tax revenue for North Dakota.

I think if North Dakota lowered it to 1% (instead of this way way too high 5%) the investment and oil/gas extraction would increase exponentially overnight...regardless of the price of that extracted oil per barrel is on the open market!!!!. Boom Baby Boom!
