North Dakota agency recommends approving oil refinery permit
The Associated Press - July 7, 2017

BELFIELD, N.D. - The North Dakota Water Commission is recommending approval for a proposed oil refinery's water permit near a national park, but for slightly less water than the developer requested.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Meridian Energy Group has made a request to withdraw nearly 197 meters of water annually from a brine formation more than 1,500 meters underground. The water would be used in the proposed Davis Refinery near Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Belfield.

The water commission is recommending a permit for about 90 percent of the company's request, which is equivalent to 190 million gallons per year. The water commission's decision is based on the company telling the North Dakota Public Service Commission that it plans to build a small oil refinery.
