All of the major energy groups from ethanol and wind to oil and coal coming to common ground, and finding consensus on policy issues to bring to the legislature. When it comes to energy North Dakota has it all, and we have been celebrating many successes. North Dakota has moved into the second largest oil-producing state in the nation with production over 640,000 barrels per day. We have coal generation at seven locations providing low cost, reliable electric power to two million customers. The state leads the nation in the production of nine different agricul- tural commodities including two commodities used for liquid fuels. Between 2007-2010 North Dakota increased its energy produc- tion by 65 percent and it is well on its way to doubling statewide pro- duction by 2025. The ethanol industry continues to thrive, and contributes more than $300 million annually to the economy and sup- ports more than 10.000 direct and indirect jobs. We are a national leader in flex fuel pump infrastruc- ture and have seen a 55 percent, increase in flex fuel vehicles over the past two years with 65,000 cur- rently on the road. By the end of 2012, natural gas processing in North Dakota will have increased 383 percent over six years. With the addition of a facili- ty coming online later this year. there will be 17 plants processing When it comes to energy North Dakota has it all, and we have been celebrating many successes. Bakken natural gas. In 2012. North Dakota ranked tenth in the nation in installed wind energy capacity. The PSC has per- mitted over 2,900 megawatts of wind generation. The state's only oil refinery has expanded by 20 percent or 10,000 barrels per day. In addition, three new refineries were announced and are at various stages of planning, permitting, and construction• Even with all of these successes we are now facing a future where energy development in all sectors can continue to grow and develop ew economies based on second- ary. value-added industries. But in order to do this the state needs to address several key areas crucial to the expansion of energy production and extraction. North Dakota needs !o work with the industry to begin .xploring ways to capture opportu- nities to develop raw resources into aew products, including petro- chemicals, plastics, nanofibers, and other manufactured products. This year's EmPower report identified four areas considered zritical for continuing to grow ener- gy production and new energy- related industries. They were infra- structure, research and develop- ment, workforce, and a regulatory environment, at both the state and federal levels, that encourages eco- nomic growth while ensuring envi- ronmentally-responsible develop- ment of natural resources. Under each of these tour issues the Commission gave recommenda- tions to legislators indicating which policy changes they would be most likely to support for the upcoming session. Adequate infrastructure is key to the efficient and effective development of our energy resources. They recommend revis- ing the state's oil and gas tax formu- la so more money goes directly back to the cities and counties to address funding shortfalls for roads, wastewater treatment facilities. water supply facilities and other needs. Under research and development they recommended allocating a portion of the Resource Trust Fund up to $3 million tbr a renewable energy research and development program, and adding $1 million to the Oil and Gas Research fund to explore opportunities related to Put Your Money Where Your House Isl Iocal irrdeper, dent  stmngttm ou fmts.es are  community o.f best value and OUr eoomy Belfield Senior Citizen's Center The Belfield Senior Citizen's Activity Center in Belfield announces the following schedule of events for August: Aug• 15, 9 a.m.-noon; 1-2:30 p.m., Health screening.

Greater accessibility to career and technical education pro- grams along with adequate training facilities were another recommen- dation to help the workforce short- age. One of the members of the Commission indicated how impor- tant it was to provide adequate funding and staffing levels for the ND Health Department. State Water Commission. ND Department of Mineral Resources, and the Public Service Commission• because of the additional burdens new energy developments are placing on the state regulatory agencies.
