Power Supply Catching Up to Demand as New Generation Comes to North Dakota, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2015) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Any slowdown in oil and gas project activity in the Bakken Shale may give Basin Electric Power Cooperative (Bismarck, North Dakota) time to catch its breath. Over the last five years, soaring oil and gas drilling and production in that state has created significant new electric load, and the electric co-op serving North Dakota has been running as fast as it can to meet the new load. As it has in other shale formations, development of the Bakken in North Dakota has triggered a wide range of economic activity to supply and support oil and gas companies.
