MINOT, N.D., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2nd Annual Bakken Investor Conference connects energy sector and real estate investors with opportunities in the Bakken Shale Play. The 2012 Bakken Investor Conference will be held April 2-4, 2012 in Minot, North Dakota.
Spurred on by billions of dollars in capital spending by the oil and gas industry, economic activity throughout Western North Dakota is at record heights while unemployment has fallen below 1% in some communities. The capital expenditure budgets for 2012 for Hess Corporation, Whiting Petroleum Corporation and Continental Resources account for about $4 billion of investment in the Williston Basin.
The activity is focused on a region in Western North Dakota with only three cities whose population is greater than 10,000 people and several more whose population is less than 2,000 people. The result is an acute demand for real estate development that spans residential and commercial projects from Dickinson to Williston to Minot, North Dakota and everywhere in-between.
