Bakken Conference

Posted: Updated:

As growth continues in the Bakken, so does the need for investors.

The Bakken Investors Conference began today,

giving investors a chance to learn about real estate, and oil and gas opportunities.

It started as a way to inform interested parties about questions they had in regards to the Bakken area.

More than 200 people are registered for the event that kicks into high gear tomorrow and Friday, investigating real estate opportunities in the Bakken.

The conference is even gaining international attention.

(Tiffany Smith, Co-Producer, Bakken Investor Conference) "We have people coming in from France this year, which is really exciting. The kind of impact the Bakken is having all over the world is kind of exciting and we're real excited to be a part of it."

This is the third year for the conference that continues to generate interest in an oil-producing region that's still a hot investment.

(Kenny Key, Project Manager, Boyd and Company) "You know everybody is really serious about the area. You've got investors coming in. Everybody knows this is a big boom. Everybody is talking about it, even in other states. Where were from, Indiana, everyone is talking about the Bakken. To know that people are flying in from not just the country but even international just shows how serious people are about this area."

The Bakken Investors Conference continues through Friday at the Sleep Inn in Minot.
