Case in point is the bill that rede- fines stripper wells and includes a re- duction in production tax if oil production grows. When the bill was in the House, the oil industry lobby- ist indicated he supported the idea. The Senate Finance and Tax Com- mittee had its hearing on the bill and the lobbyist ~ame in and testified against the bill. The tax department reported to the House Finance and Tax Committee that the bill was rev- enue neutral, when the Senate re- viewed the fiscal note it read a $127 cent. In April 2012, when the Pipeline Authority first began pro- viding the transportation ratios, the rail/pipeline percent split was 28/56 percent, but ever since, rail has been either holding nearly steady or has gained on pipelines, and in Septem- Operator failed to wear seat ber rail surpassed pipelines for the belt: Cody W.

This usually indicates that the ses- sion will run close to the 80 days with some ,long conference commit- tees. Another result that happens at crossover is that legislators get a good look at the proposed spending level that has been introduced and passed out of each chamber. The summary indicates We are over budget by $800 million and everyone starts to worry how to keep their fa- vorite project funded. We all know that if one project gets funded then there is less money for another proj- ect. The results of how much fund- ing is going where will not be known until the end of session so the waiting game has started. These are times that test a person's patience and nerves. The bill that addresses the oil and gas impact dollars had a good hear- ing in the Senate Finance and Tax Committee, but I don't expect any ac- tion until the end of March. It will then go to a conference committee and that committee will work out any differences between the House and Senate version. Rep. David Drovdal District 39, R-Arnegard Oil (Continued from Page 1) attractive in that direction; if they need to switch over to pipeline trans- portation for other marketing reasons the.flexibility, and the opportunities are there." On the natural gas side, Kringstad said the number of wells with first- time gas sales was down in Decem- ber; but he said that was in line with the total number of new wells that went into production in December. "So even though there was a slight downtick, it's still keeping up with the production side, which is very en- couraging." On flaring, Kringstad said he sees two challenges, one being to build the pipeline footprint out farther to reach wells outside of the Bakken core area. But inside that core area, he said, compression is an important issue and how to utilize the existing gas lines to move additional gas. "So as-the infill drilling starts to take place, as we're seeing more and more production from smaller areas, we need to make sure that compres- sion is going to be installed and that those pipelines can handle those larger volumes." Kringstad said he has been told that ,pipeline companies are taking advantage of , the reduction in pipeline transport to perform mainte- nance. When pipelines are "running full and running at full throttle," it's difficult for the companies to keep up with maintenance, he said. But the pipeline companies don't expect the open capacity to be a long-term issue, Kringstad said, and the current open capacity has given them "a little" bit of breathing room." On upcoming pipeline projects in North Dakota, Kringstad said there are a number of projects on several levels. On projects dealing. with major export out of the basin, Kringstad said probably the "sizable" project on .the federal side is En- bridge's Sandpiper project, which would provide an additional 225,000 barrels per day capacity to the Gulf. But he said there are a number of lo- calized projects to move crude oil within the basin. Kringstad said he is not aware of any new plans for addi- tional rail terminals, but said that doesn't necessarily mean there won't be any more built in the future.
