Six US Post Offices In North Dakota To Get New Technology; New Poll: Will The Active Rig Count In North Dakota Go Over 200 This Summer? Nearing 6 Million Page Views

Think about this: Watford City in the same category as Fargo when it comes to mail volume. 

The Fargo Forum is reporting:
Six U.S. Postal Service offices in North Dakota will receive mobile point of sale devices this week to improve customer service.
The technology will allow employees to process simple transactions away from the counter. The devices will be installed in offices in Bismarck, Dickinson, Fargo, Minot, Watford City and Williston.
U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., announced the postal service improvements that are part of an ongoing effort to improve mail delivery in North Dakota.

The poll is pretty simple. Yes. No. That's is. Do you think we'll see 200 active rigs in North Dakota this summer?

I can't go into the details, and I won't answer any questions, but based on a phone call moments ago to a long-term resident of Williston, North Dakota, I am really, really excited about the possibility that the active rig count could go over 200 this summer in North Dakota.

Rig counts are not the end-all and be-all to overall productivity, but the number of active rigs do correlate with overall activity. It should be noted that since last summer there is at least one new operator in the Williston Basin, and at least one operator has increased the number of rigs in the past year.

I'm going to go on record that I don't think we will actually hit the 200-active-rig milestone this summer but I will vote the opposite. That way I can say I voted "Yes" but said it wouldn't happen. Sort of how a politician would "vote."

By the way, speaking of milestones, sometime in the next 24 hours, the MillionDollarWay will go over 6,000,000 page views. At the moment: 5, 999,855 page views. As usual, a free lifetime membership to the blog who is the "millionth viewer." Restrictions apply. Not valid in every state. This is not a lottery. There is no monetary value to the free membership.
