  • 1. What does the Bakken meanfor North Dakota
  • 2. Upper Great Plains Transportation• In 2010, the Oil and Gas Producing Counties Association commissioned The Upper Great Plains Institute to do a transportation infrastructure study.• This study was chaired by Shane Goettle, of the North Dakota Commerce Commission. Participants included: * Association of Oil & Gas Producing Counties * The ND Oil and Gas Commission * Department of Commerce * ND Department of Transportation * Oil & Gas Industry
  • 3. Current ActivityThe Upper GreatPlains Studyconcluded that thereare currently 5,200active wells in NorthDakota, and the NorthDakota Oil and GasCommission suggeststhat a total of 21,250wells will be drilled inthe next 10 to 20years. The geologicalsuccess of these wellis 90% or greater.

  • 5. Trucking• 2024 truck loads are needed per well drilled thru completion including the frac job. Trucks Wells Total Loads Per Year 2,024 1500 3,036,000 3,036,000 / 365 days = 8,317 Truck loads per day Or 273 billion lbs traveled on our state and county roads / day
  • 6. Sand Requirements• 3 million lbs of sandper well• 1500 wells per year• =4.5 billion lbs ofsand per year •Or 2,500 rail cars of sand per year or 112,500 Truck loads of sand per year
  • 7. Water (Fresh)• 50,000 barrels ofwater per well•1500 wells per year• = 35 million barrelsof water•Or 625,000 Truckloads of water
  • 8. Oil Transporation• Approximately200,000 barrels of oilbeing hauled per day• Or 1,000 Truckloads of oil beinghauled per day
  • 9. Water (waste)• Approximately200,000 barrels ofwaste water beinghauled per day• Or 1,600 Truckloads of waste waterbeing hauled per day
  • 10. Truck Transportation Math –Exploration and ProductionTruck Transportation Loads per year Rig Movements 3,036,000 Oil 365,000 Production Water 584,000 Total 3,985,000 per day 10,917 loads
  • 11. Truck Transportation Wrap-up• As you can see truck transportation is vital to the oil and gas industry.• There are over 10,000 trucks on the state and county road per day that are directly associated with the oil and gas industry• The Upper Great Plains Study concluded that in the next 4 years the counties will need an additional 500 million dollars to bring their infrastructure up to a standard to able to support the oil and gas industry
  • 12. Workforce• There currently is an additional 30,000 employees inNorth Dakota that directly support the oil and gas industry,and with continued growth this number is only going torise.• At least half of these employees are in temporaryhousing.• There are many challenges associated with this newgrowth: • lack of workforce • lack of housing • social needs • school infrastructure • emergency services
  • 13. City Infrastructure Needs• Watford City as an example, has apopulation of 2,500 with 1,000 of thembeing in temporary housing. Capital Improvement Plan Watford City
  • 14. Capital Improvements PlanWatford City, North Dakota Total Estimated  Project Costs $18,340,979
  • 15. What Does this Mean for North Dakota• Projected Production from the Bakken estimated at 20billion barrels of oil X $100/barrel = 2 trillion dollars•That will generate 180 billion in tax revenue, • less 40 billion for state projects, leaves 140 billion •divided by 600,000 residents is $233,000 per resident.• This Does Not Come without Change/Impacts• We Must Re-Invest in the Bakken • Housing, Capital improvements, Schools • Jobs in Many Sectors • Tremendous Wealth Creation
