I'm glad Minot is getting some of the oil company business, but as far as the oil gradually moving east? Really? When and where? So far, Ward county has seen very minimal drilling activity, and when there is the wells are not producing. They pretty much have decided where the oil is and will continue to invest in the area's they already know will produce. As far as the Minot Baker Hughes facility? The reason they can fit 5 divisions in one facility is because there isn't the demand that they are having in places like Williston and Dickinson, where they need multiple facilities to operate out of to house their employees and equipment. The 2 new facilities in Williston are just 2 of 3 other Baker Hughes buildings scattered around Williston. Dickinson also has more than one Baker Huges facility. Minot has one because that is all that is needed in this part of the state. But we still appreciate oil considering Minot as a place to operate out of.
