Bakken Federal Executives Group Meets in Dickinson
BLM Montana/Dakotas State Director Jamie Connell and Associate State Director Katherine Kitchell and other members of the Bakken Federal Executives Group met June 19 in Dickinson, N.D., as part of their strategy to address issues related to energy development in the region.
The BFEG met in Dickinson and discussed a variety of topics including issues related to pay and human resources; streamlining permitting; the Baseline Environmental Status and Trends (BEST) project; an update on pipeline projects in the Bakken, and a NPS Sensitive Area Mapping presentation. The group had briefings from Lynn Helms, North Dakota Industrial Commission Director, on the State of North Dakota’s permit review policy and their gas capture plan policy, as well as an update from Three Affiliated Tribes Council Member, Ken Hall. Then the group spent a day in the field and traveled north to the Fort Berthold Reservation where they visited a single well pad with drilling, production and well completion activities all taking place on one well pad, located near Mandaree.
