Energy Expo host celebrates 75th anniversary
North Dakota engineering firm, KLJ, celebrated their 75th anniversary this week in conjunction with a launch of their company’s refreshed image – which comes with a new logo and website. With more than 700 employees in five states, KLJ works with many energy-related projects throughout the region, ranging from oil and gas, transmission and distribution, and environmental services. KLJ conducted the Williston Basin Oil and Gas-Related Electrical Load Growth Forecast, results of which will be released to the public today at a press event at the North Dakota Industrial Commission meeting. More details of the Load Growth Study will be discussed at the Nov. 19th Great Plains & EmPower ND Energy Expo (registration available online). KLJ, along with U.S. Senators Kent Conrad, John Hoeven, N.D. Governor Jack Dalrymple, Bismarck State College, the Great Plains Energy Corridor, and the N.D. Department of Commerce, are hosting the state’s largest energy policy conference.
KLJ also received the largest North Dakota Department of Transportation project in history – widening U.S. Highway 85 to four lanes between Watford City and Williston to better handle oil field traffic. The company commemorated their anniversary with a video on their history and service.
