WILLISTON - Williston Economic Development has launched an initiative that should reduce costs and increase efficiency for Bakken operators.

The Enhanced Bakken Supply Chain Initiative is aimed at manufacturing and logistics business development in the Oil Patch, according to a news release.

“The oil and gas operators in the Williston Basin face a higher break-even crude price due to higher costs and inefficiencies in the Bakken supply chain,” Shawn Wenko, Williston Economic Development executive director, said in the release Tuesday, adding there are companies that can serve the industry in a way that reduces costs and turnaround times.

To kick off the initiative, Williston Economic Development has partnered with marketing consultant firm DAWA Solutions Group to produce the Manufacturing and Logistics Conference March 25-26 at Williston State College.
