June 28, 2022 – North Dakota Petroleum Council President Ron Ness was named the 12th recipient of the Energy Champion Award presented by the University of North Dakota Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC).

The award was presented during the EERC’s annual Energizing North Dakota’s Future conference.  Ron has served as President of the North Dakota Petroleum Council since 1999 and was appointed by Governor’s Schafer, Hoeven, Dalrymple, and Burgum to the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, the Oil and Gas Research Council, the Empower North Dakota Commission and the Governor’s Revenue Advisory Committee.
