North Dakota Oil Conference Draws Thousands From 48 States


The North Dakota Petroleum Council is hosting the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck this week.

It’s a pretty big deal for both North Dakota and the national energy industry (Sean Hannity will be addressing the conference tomorrow).

NDPC spokeswoman Tess Sandstrom was kind enough to forward me some of the attendance figures for the conference, and they’re impressive. As of yesterday evening the event had 4,108 registrations from 48 US states, nine┬áCanadian provinces, and eight countries that aren’t the United States or Canada.

I’m trying to think of another industry event in North Dakota that has this sort of pull, and I honestly can’t think of one.

The full breakdown of the attendance by state/province/country is below.
