World Trade Center Utah is offering a seminar Wednesday aimed at identifying business opportunities in the Bakken oil fields that might be available to companies in the state.
A new report details many of the needs from hosing to pipeline construction being generated by drilling in the oil formation that stretches from western North Dakota and northeast Montana into Canada's Saskatchewan Province. Output has been so prodigious that some estimates say the hub could challenge production levels in the Gulf Coast.
Copies of the report will be available at the seminar, which also will feature specific information companies need to assess their ability to play a role in the unfolding energy boom that has seen oil production double in the past two years. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Salt Lake Chamber, 175 E. University Blvd. (400 South), Suite 600, in Salt Lake City.
