Legislators review natural gas tax exemption bill
House Bill 1134 is a proposal that would give tax incentives and exemptions to oil and gas companies for reducing natural gas flaring in the state. Current rate of flaring is 30 percent. If a company connected a drilled well on day one with a natural gas gathering system, it would be eligible for a two-year oil exemption from state gross production taxes. North Dakota Mineral Resources director Lynn Helms said that this bill would reduce flaring and bring new technologies to the state. Read the article in the Bismarck Tribune.
