Ad Hoc Committee Sign-up
As the focus on oil and gas development has increased in North Dakota over the last several years, so has the complexity and extent of issues addressed by the North Dakota Petroleum Council. The Board of Directors hopes to take advantage of its members' expertise and encourages those interested to volunteer for the effort of developing our industry presence.
The intent of establishing ad hoc committees is to provide a resource of technical knowledge and expertise used to analyze issues that arise in industry-related areas. The committees will serve as a resource for the Petroleum Council to utilize in addressing complex issues and providing guidance to the Petroleum Council on key issues.
