DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Officials have formally dedicated a new oil refinery in western North Dakota.
Bismarck-based MDU Resources Group and Indianapolis-based Calumet Specialty Products Partners built the $430 million Dakota Prairie Refinery near Dickinson.
Officials on Monday held a grand opening celebration. Gov. Jack Dalrymple and U.S. Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp were on hand.
Crews broke ground on the refinery in March 2013. It can process 20,000 barrels of oil each day into diesel fuel and other products. It began selling the fuel in May.
