Manufacturing in the Bakken Oilfield Region

The Bakken is rocking, and so is its manufacturing base!  North Dakota boasts a strong metal manufacturing base heavily rooted in production of equipment and components for the ag industry.  As the growth in the Williston Basin oilfields has presented opportunity, regional manufacturers have started tooling up to support the oil and gas industry.  You can find North Dakota manufacturers making items such as:

Frac Tanks                         Oilfield Storage Tanks                               Shale Catch Tanks

Pipe Racks                         Flowback Tanks                                       Containment systems

Flares                                 Service Rigs                                             Drilling Rigs

Heat Treaters                       Industrial Heaters                                     Filtration Systems


The list goes on and on.  Many components tradionally sourced out of state are now being manufactured in ND.  These examples are primarily for metal finished goods, but ND's capabilities span across many different materials and processes.  If anyone is looking for a manufacturer to produce components whether it be for your general outsourcing efforts, oil and gas components, etc, NDSU's manufacturing extension would be happy to help you find a manufacturer that can suit your needs!
