BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Colorado energy company has been barred from doing business in North Dakota.
Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has issued a cease and desist order against Bakken Exploration LLC of Brighton, Colo., and its operators. A spokesman for the company, Timothy Kelly, declined comment.
Stenehjem says Bakken Exploration is in the business of obtaining or leasing oil and gas rights from mineral owners. He says he has received complaints of fraudulent activity.
The consumer protection division of the attorney general's office launched an investigation. Stenehjem says Bakken Exploration failed to provide responses.
