The Bakken job fair held yesterday in Williston was sold out to employers and the number of job applicants that came didn't disappoint. Local officials only expected 600-700 people, but more than 1,300 came through the doors while the show was open.

Some of the job seekers even spent the night in their car to make sure they were one of the first in the door.

With the success of this event, I'm going out on a limb and going to say I bet we see more job fairs in the near future.

North Dakota Rig Count Sets Record at 204 - November 2011

The North Dakota rig count reached an all time record on November 19, 2011, when the ND Oil & Gas Division announced there were 204 active rigs working in the state. The overwhelming majority of rigs are targeting the Bakken and Three Forks formations. With oil prices holding strong and gas prices dropping through the fall, I expect we'll potentially shoot through this record when a few gas directed rigs head our way.
