Basin Electric staff including, Mike Eggl, senior vice president of External Relations and Communications, Mike Risan, senior vice president of Transmission, and Claire Olson, senior vice president and general counsel, spent Feb. 3 touring the Bakken oil field of western North Dakota.

Dale Haugen, general manager of Mountrail-Williams Electric Cooperative, Williston, ND, hosted the tour.

Eggl and Dale Niezwaag, senior legislative representative, took some video during the tour. See the videos below: Quick look at housing in western North Dakota, Tour of ONEOK plant under construction, and Looking at Mountrail-Williams load growth.


  1. All I can say is ‘wow’. Good videos of the present situation.

    Nice job on the videos. They really give a better understanding of man-camps and the situation facing electric co-ops and the region.
