Rig Job Boom in North Dakota

The number of oil rigs in North Dakota’s oil patch has practically doubled since the summer months, and as an added bonus, so have the jobs. The increase in number of rigs is attributed in part to the BP oil spill which has companies drilling on land instead of off shore. Another reason for the jump could be the strong crude oil prices of late, along with the weak prices of natural gas.

Each new rig that comes onto the scene brings 40 direct jobs, and 80 indirect jobs, this is great news for those who feel like unemployment is the theme of this year. North Dakota has been going strong, currently there are 4810 active wells as of spring of this year, producing approximately 284,345 barrels of crude oil each day. Making North Dakota the 4th largest oil producer in North America.
