Petroleum Council Conducts Crude Oil Study

Posted: Updated:

Lawmakers and the public have concerns about the way Bakken crude oil is transported, and the North Dakota Petroleum Council is conducting an independent study on the properties of Bakken crude.

The council has hired Turner, Mason and Co, to do the testing.

"Essentially Bakken crude in North Dakota is Bakken crude. It doesn't really make a big difference of where in the Bakken it comes from. There might be slight differences, but that's what the intent of the test is. Ultimately, we think that if we create a standard for Bakken crude then everyone will know what is going in that rail car," says Ron Ness of the North Dakota Petroleum Council.

The council is expected to give an update at its Williston Basin Petroleum conference in May.
