Annual Report

Spotlight 2015 CoverThank you for checking out the latest edition of the Great Plains Energy Corridor’s Spotlight on North Dakota Energy!

North Dakota’s energy story is an ever-changing, fluid narrative. The state’s oil and gas industries are currently experiencing significant difficulties related to low prices and over supply. The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division expects these factors to continue throughout 2016, impacting jobs, companies, communities, and state revenues. But the resources remain, and as prices rebound and demand strengthens, there is every reason to believe that these industries will again flourish.

The Great Plains Energy Corridor, housed at Bismarck State College’s National Energy Center of Excellence, works with partners in government, education and the private sector to promote and enhance North Dakota’s energy development. Together we provide information, education, outreach programs and special events on a wide range of energy topics. Peruse this website to find more detailed information about what you see in this booklet.
