Headlines From The Williston Wire

For newbies: the current Bakken boom began in Montana in 2000; it began in North Dakota in 2007. Whether one says the boom has been going on for 13 years or 6 years, it is incredible that we are still seeing the type of activity note below. With all that has happened in the past decade, look at what keeps coming in:

A ground breaking ceremony was held recently for the Renaissance Heights Apartments project in Williston.  
The first phase of the development will feature 288 units in five buildings. The luxury apartment complex will have a clubhouse with an indoor pool and spa. 
Holiday Stationstores, an industry leader in convenience stores, has signed a commitment to open a new location on the NEC of Hwy 2 and Chandler Blvd in Willstion.
Holiday Stationstores will develop a 6,000+ square foot convenience store with multiple fuel pumps and a car wash. The Holiday development is part of a larger 25 acre commercial development called Chandler Field.
The fate of the 18th Street/West Dakota Parkway intersection took one giant leap forward when the Williston City Commission approved the latest recommendation for an underpass during a recent meeting. 
The recommendation was made by Public Works Director Monte Meiers on behalf of a special committee established by the commission to identify an agreeable solution. The proposal would align 18th Street West to Bison Drive, which would convert 18th Street to the Bison Corridor on the west side.
A public hearing will be held to discuss potential improvements and impacts associated with construction of the proposed bypass route connecting US Highway 85 and ND Highway 23 south of Watford City, ND.

Murex Petroleum Corporation would like to build an oil field supply service and shop that may bring 25 to 30 employees and their families to the Fortuna area within the next few years.  In addition to the facility, the company plans on building seven to 14 homes to accommodate employees and their families.

Eagle Landing, a new $20 million housing facility for oil field workers rising from the prairie outside of Sidney, Montana, isn't a typical man camp, Scott Willard explains. It's not, he says, a man camp at all.
"It's another living option for oil workers," Willard says. "But it's a subdivision instead of a man camp."
Eleven (11) new refineries, port terminals in Pacific Northwest will receive Bakken crude by rail.

North Dakota's capacity to export oil by rail jumped by 50% in June. The increase came from a pair of new CBR facilities. This brings the number of CBR terminals to 17 in  built in the state since 2008.
