North Dakota: #2 Overall; #1 In Economic Growth -- US News -- March 4, 2017

The photo alone is worth 10,000 words:

The headline is worth another 10,000 words: US News -- Best States -- North Dakota's oil boom fuels economic growth. From the article:
  • North Dakota: among the top five US states (economic, educational, health, and other metrics)
  • economic growth : #1 in the Best States rankings
  • overall measure of state economies: #2
Just wait until Bakken 2.0 hits its stride, probably sometime in 2018 or 2019

Actually this link to US News, Best States, 2017, shows North Dakota at #4:
  • Massachusetts, #1
  • New Hampshire, #2
  • Minnesota, #3
  • North Dakota, #4
  • Washington, #5
  • Iowa, #6
  • Utah, #7
  • Maryland, #8
  • Colorado, #9
  • Vermont, #10
 Again, it looks like "how/what" is measured.

American Midstream Connects With DAPL

Press release.
American Midstream Partners, LP, today announced it has entered a connection agreement with Dakota Access Pipeline, the 1,172-mile 30-inch pipeline that extends from the Partnership’s Bakken formation production area in North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois.

The new DAPL interconnect will tie into the Partnership’s Bakken crude oil gathering system which consists of interstate pipelines with capacity to transport up to approximately 40,000 barrels per day of crude oil. In addition, the Partnership’s Bakken crude oil gathering system has crude oil trucking capabilities located near Watford City, ND that provides greater producer access to market alternatives and off-take capabilities. AMID recently added hydrogen sulfide treating to its Bakken system allowing customers to meet pipeline specifications for crude oil delivery thereby expanding customer service offerings and the competitive footprint of the system. Leveraging off the recent additions to the Partnership’s system and the new connection to DAPL, AMID will be able to deliver an incremental 20,000 barrels per day to market.
