North Dakota Breaks Ground on First New U.S. Refinery Since 1976

Construction of the Dakota Prairie Refinery began with a groundbreaking ceremony held by the developers, MDU Resources Group, Inc. and Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P.

Construction of the diesel refinery, on a 318-acre site located west of Dickinson in Stark County, ND is expected to take approximately 20 months. The refinery will process 20,000 barrels per day of Bakken crude oil.

The facility’s engineering and plant design are in the final stages. Westcon has been selected as the general contractor and Ventech Engineering will be the primary equipment and technology provider. MDU Resources’ construction businesses, Knife River Corporation and MDU Construction Services Group, are among potential subcontractors. Other MDU Resources’ companies involved in the project include Fidelity Exploration and Production Company, which will supply some of the facility’s crude oil; WBI Energy, which will supply natural gas service to operate the facility; and Montana-Dakota Utilities, which will supply the facility’s electricity needs.
