Industrial Commission approves oil mega-unit
BISMARCK – The North Dakota Industrial Commission voted 2-1 today to approve an oil drilling proposal to develop 25,000 acres in McKenzie County as one large unit, with Gov. Jack Dalrymple the sole opposing vote.
The proposal from QEP Energy Co. to develop what is known as the Grail-Bakken Unit will still require approval from 60 percent of mineral owners in the area.
