Backyard view to the oil boom: Statoil drills 4 wells adjacent to Williston homes
WILLISTON -- Residents of one of Williston's newest neighborhoods now have an up-close view of a drilling rig.
Statoil is drilling four wells in northwest Williston, adjacent to many homes and a developing residential area.
For Fargo man Chuck Horejsi, who is renting a room in a house near the rig this summer, seeing the derrick from his bedroom window is unusual.
"Only in Williston," Horejsi said, laughing. "I can't believe they put an oil rig in the backyard."
