Statoil Breaks Grounds On New Building

One of the companies doing business in western North Dakota is making a further investment in their property south of Ross over the next few months. Statoil broke ground for their new office building/warehouse located one half mile south on 90th Avenue on Wednesday, Aug. 13.

The building was designed a long time ago when the company first started zoning this parcel of property, but it has taken a little longer to get going. Just like everyone else, they have been working hard to find the contractors needed to get the structure completed. This permanent structure demonstrates Statoilís belief they are not going anywhere as the Bakken play continues. Thatís also not to say they may not see a need to expand in the future. For now, though, this building will provide a better place for employees to work. There will be five large office spaces that can be shared by more than one employee. There is a break room and a conference room with video conference capabilities. The warehouse will provide better protection for yard equipment and allow employees to work on equipment out of any inclement weather. It also will help them keep track of what is in and what is out of the facility as well. Statoil has five permanent employees at the location with a total of 28 badged employees in and out of the facility. They also have five to   Login or Subscribe to view full stories.
