North Dakota booming with oil

North Dakota booming with oil

As of 2006, the state was only producing about 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day, putting it on par with other mid-tier oil producing states like Kansas, Colorado and Montana. But new hydraulic fracturing techniques and the opening of the massive Bakken formation to drilling changed all that, and as of January 2013 the state was producing an average of 770,000 barrels of crude per day, for a total of 23,834,000 barrels per month.”

It’s no wonder with all the oil in North Dakota that the state is ranked #3 in the US for producing the most oil, Texas of course being #1.

Oil production increases Railroad growth

“US President Barack Obama in his second inaugural speech called for a $50 billion upgrade of the US transportation infrastructure, including rail that political analysts say will be hard to finance.”

 “The rapidly growing need for more rail transportation of crude has triggered sizeable investments in both loading and unloading facilities and soaring orders for tank cars “making movement of oil by rail a major growth market for North American railroads,”

The rapid increase of North American crude production has resulted in pipeline bottlenecks in some areas, forcing more reliance on rail transportation to access some of the highest-value markets
