Whiting looks to the future in the Bakken

Whiting looks to the future in the Bakken
By Jerry W. Kram
Whiting Petroleum Corporation thinks it’s going to be a player in the Bakken oil patch for a good long time.
To symbolize that fact, the company will keep a time capsule to remind future employees of the company’s humble start in Mountrail County. Whiting’s area operations supervisor for the Northern Williston Basin Darius Frick, described the dozen or so artifacts that would be preserved at the end of a dedication ceremony for the company’s new offices at its Robinson Lake facility on N.D. Highway 8.
The office complex is across the highway from the company’s natural gas liquefaction plant, which condenses propane and butane from natural gas from area wells and ships the gas to consumers for home heating and other uses. The office also manages all of Whiting’s oil wells in what is know as the Sanish oil field.
