Managing the Impacts of Bakken Oil Exploration on North Dakota Roadways
Recorded on Friday, March 9, 2012:
1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time
Improvements in oil extraction technology have led to widespread exploration of the Bakken formation in western North Dakota. The hydraulic fracturing process generates significant truck volumes for each well drilled. In addition, outbound movements of crude oil and wastewater add heavy truck trips to roadway networks that were initially designed to handle low volume agricultural traffic.
This webinar will discuss the impacts of oil exploration on county and local roadways. Included will be discussion of the types and numbers of truck trips generated by horizontal well drilling, impacts on low volume roads, county methods of dealing with traffic increases, and analysis of the funding needs facing local entities.

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.
If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
