Other views: Reroute pipeline to avoid prairie
First, let’s be clear: As long as North Dakota produces oil, a lot of that oil will have to be shipped out of state. And over the long term, pipelines are the safest and most cost-effective way of moving oil. This very much includes any oil that winds up being shipped East. So,...

Other Views: Pursue water line to Red River Valley
Somewhere, where the water runs clean and cold and there is no drought, former North Dakota Gov. Bill Guy is smiling. A serious discussion of a water delivery system he championed in the last years of his life is underway. The aim of a diverse assembly of state and local officials...

Other views: Oil on rails an ongoing saga in ND
Forum Communications Co.’s series “The Crude Frontier” is putting in broad context the huge challenges associated with moving Bakken light crude oil by rail. The reporting, done primarily by journalists from The Forum and the Grand Forks Herald, comprises the most comprehensive...

Other Views: North Dakota flaring initiative looks good
An initiative by the oil and gas industry to reduce natural gas flaring at well sites in North Dakota’s Bakken oil play looks very promising. Working with the state Industrial Commission, other state agencies, the Legislature, landowners and tribal interests, the industry is bringing...

Other views: In praise of GOP flexibility on the Farm Bill
The Left has its blind spots. One of them came into plain view last week: After the State Department concluded — again — that neither blocking nor approving the Keystone XL pipeline would significantly affect greenhouse-gas emissions, key anti-Keystone activists vowed … to fight...

Other Views: Conservation becomes political force in ND
Not so long ago, if the North Dakota Industrial Commission had weighed a conservation-minded argument against a pro-development case that had strong industry support, the developers would have won in a rout. Back then, North Dakota had little patience with most conservationists,...

Other Views: Oil group’s reaction is overkill
When, in response to the Dec. 30 oil train wreck near Casselton, the chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party sagely suggested the pace of oil development should be re-examined, a major oil company player in the Bakken said no one should “overreact.” State GOP Chairman Bob...

Other Views: Proposed measures insult North Dakota
Two quixotic campaigns to put tax/budget measures on the North Dakota ballot are reminders of one of President Ronald Reagan’s signature lines: “Well, there you go again …” Well, there they go again. Two separate efforts are underway. One would eliminate the property tax...

Other views: Promotion, regulation of oil, gas do not mix
How is it that one of the most important state agencies in North Dakota has been stuck with the impossible task of regulation and promotion? The contradiction is obvious. Effective regulation leaves no room for promotion. Promotion implies an agenda that is anathema to serious regulation....

Our View: Slowing down ND oil industry not the right answer
Agendas come to the forefront when a major incident happens. Politicians, media outlets and anyone else who doesn’t like oil drilling in western North Dakota was quick to react in the aftermath of an explosion of Bakken crude oil from a train derailment near Casselton on Dec. 30. Suddenly,...
