A Trip to the Bakken: Some Pictures

Following are some pictures from my adventures so far, as described in my prior posts on my Bakken Oil trip in western North Dakota, here and here. Thanks to co-blogger Haskell Murray for the suggestion.

 This is a picture of one of the mudrooms from a crew camp near Dickinson, ND, in Dunn County:

This is a VIP room in the same facility. It has a private bath, while other rooms are smaller and share a jack-and-jill style bathroom.

This is the sign for the guest laundry -- No Greasers.

This is a picture of the crude oil site for loading oil on the tanker cars.

Most of the oil coming out of North Dakota, 1 million barrels a day, is shipped by rail:

This is North Dakota crude. It comes from the ground a little more orange in color, but mellows to this over time.  It's not thick; it almost like iced tea.

Flaring natural gas remains a problem, though some gathering is underway to help reduced the amount of flaring in the state.
