North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is working to bring solutions to North Dakota's abundant natural gas! He recently led a group of state officials and legislative leaders on a tour of petrochemical facilities in Alberta, Canada, as part of efforts to bring the petrochemical industry to North Dakota.
“North Dakota has abundant, rich natural gas that could be processed right here in our state to create jobs, diversify the economy and grow wealth in our communities. Gaining a better understanding of how Alberta developed its petrochemical industry will help us choose the right path for processing North Dakota gas at home."
The Department of Commerce estimates that primary and secondary refinement of North Dakota’s rich natural gas could draw more than $9 billion in capital investment while providing hundreds of good-paying jobs and generating additional tax.
Mending relationships after the DAPL protests will take time, but this is a good step to rebuilding the broken trust.
