Stanley Protects Landowners

Posted: Updated:

With hundreds of drilling sites across the Northwestern part of North Dakota, the oil companies have laid claim much of the land ..... which leaves many landowners with questions..
                   
The Northwest Landowners Association's annual meeting was held this afternoon.
The meeting is a way for landowners to come together to voice concerns and become educated on the rights of landowner's rights when it comes to drilling oil on private land.
Todays topic of discussion came from Soil Scientist Lance Lokken (LOW-KEN) of Western Plains Consulting focusing mainly on the how soil is affected due to crude or salt water spills and how to deal with them.
The meeting also focused on putting regulations in place to monitor the drilling of oil properly.

(Troy Coons, Vice Chair, Northwest Landowners Association) "On the business side, the oil side, they know what they are doing. They have everything in place. Individual property owners are not versed in this. We are trying to unify the voice, unify the message and educate."

State Representatives were in attendance this afternoon and will be lobbying the next session for Fair and Equitable Treatment of Property Owners.
