The NDPC facilitates several committees that monitor and engage on various issues and help help develop and lead the regulatory, legislative and communications strategies for the industry.
All members of the North Dakota Petroleum Council are encouraged to join our staff and ad hoc committees to help better serve the industry as advocates for oil and gas in North Dakota. 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. We hope to take advantage of all our members’ technical knowledge and expertise to analyze issues that arise in industry-related areas, formulate solutions and help guide the North Dakota Petroleum Council and its Board of Directors in making decisions.
