Application for ND oil refinery approved, would be first built in US in 30 years
NEW TOWN, N.D. - An oil refinery, the first to be built in the United States in more than 30 years, is planned for the Fort Berthold Reservation.

By: Forum Communications, INFORUM


NEW TOWN, N.D. - An oil refinery, the first to be built in the United States in more than 30 years, is planned for the Fort Berthold Reservation.

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today announced approval of an application from the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation for the refinery.

Project developers of the MHA Nation Clean Fuels Refinery estimate it could create 800 to 1,000 construction jobs, up to 140 operations jobs, and millions in annual revenue to benefit the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara tribes and surrounding communities, according to the announcement.

The 13,000 barrel-per-day facility would refine Bakken crude oil into products including diesel fuel and propane.

The tribes requested that the Bureau of Indian Affairs accept a 469-acre piece of property into trust, with a proposed refinery on about 190 acres and the remaining acreage to be used for the production of feed for buffalo.

Gee, I wonder if they built another one of those in California, we could handle some downtime at the other 2 that are offline right now?

Guess I better clue them solar panels to my car.

Wonder if the fact that it's on what I assume is an Indian reservation, which makes it exempt from a bunch of laws as I understand it, is a significant factor? Probably so, and a sad statement on American over-regulation in the space if so.

Environmental regulations are good, but so is processing raw materials into usable products.

We have more oil in California than Texas.

Oh damn, we can't do anything about it. We still have a shitload of gold, which would help a few folks get back to work, but damn, we can't do anything about it.

We have a rare earth mine in the desert too, but, once again.... Environazis can't have their pristine anything sullied.

Would have been nice to have some sort of pipeline bringing Canada's oil to us too, wouldn't it?

"Can't wait to become Brazil's best customer" with their off shore oil drilling that Obama supports.

Bring us down, Bring other countries up. Economic justice of an international sort.

Sorry Democrats, you belong to a rich country, and even though you are in the 99%, you are still too damn rich.

13k barrels a day isn't really all that much.

Here in SD a Texas company tried for several years to get approval for a 435k barrel a day refinery built just a few miles from me.

The Sierra Club has been fighting them the entire way. The company just gave up the options to the land they had acquired so I don't think it is going to fly.

The environmentalist wackos of this country need a smack down.

As a long time fan of a team out there...I would hope for them to relocate right before it happens
