Bismarck Tribune Editorial Cites Landowner Concerns


The Bismarck Tribune published an editorial highlighting State Ag Commissioner Doug Goehring’s concern about proposed changes to state oil and gas rules. “He said they could create potential hardships for landowners, and the Tribune Editorial Board agrees.” 

The editors’ final sentences say it best: The Tribune isn’t against enhanced oil recovery, but we believe landowners need to be treated fairly. Making them wait for years to see if a company will try for enhanced recovery isn’t fair. Oil revenue has done wonders for the state, but farmers and ranchers have done wonderful things for the state for much longer.
