Study Examines Benefits of Expanding North Dakota Oil Refinery Capacity – A recent press release through Senator Byron Dorgan’s (D-N.D.) office indicates that the results of an oil refinery study shows "real promise" for building a new 34,000 barrel per day diesel and naphtha refinery in North Dakota. The study was conducted by The North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives with support by the Corval Group, Purvin and Gertz Inc., and Mustang Engineers and Constructors and was managed through the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). The final report will be available through NETL within a few weeks. Read the DOE/NETL project summary.
