Oil was first discovered in North Dakota near Tioga in 1951.
Since then, landowners, mineral owners and the oil industry have had, at times, strained relations. Issues such as disruption payments to surface owners, prior notice to commencement of drilling operations, payment of royalties in a timely manner and cleanup around abandoned well sites have been a source of irritation.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Monday it will allow 13 companies to resume deepwater drilling without any additional environmental scrutiny, just months after saying it would require strict reviews for new drilling in the wake of the BP oil spill.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pointing to the BP blowout and risks of a new environmental disaster, the Obama administration reversed itself Wednesday and promised not to pursue offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico or anywhere else along the nation's East Coast.
At the same time they are venting their fury on BP over the Gulf of Mexico spill and its calamitous environmental effects, Louisiana politicians are rushing to the defense of the oil-and-gas industry and pleading with Washington to bring back offshore drilling — now.
As angry as they are over the disaster, state officials warn that the Obama administration’s temporary ban on drilling in the Gulf has sent Louisiana’s most lucrative industry into a death spiral.

Shaking up years of energy policy and his own environmental backers, President Barack Obama threw open a huge swath of East Coast waters and other protected areas in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico to drilling Wednesday, widening the politically explosive hunt for more homegrown oil and gas.
While the oil patch in North Dakota continues to grow and become more productive, don’t look for drilling rigs in the Jamestown area any time soon, said Steve Nordeng, subsurface geologist for the North Dakota Geological Survey.
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management frequently misinterpreted and violated a federal law that sought to expedite oil and gas drilling in the West, a Government Accountability Office report said Wednesday.
