This place is rigged
Accessing drilling rigs isn’t an easy thing to do in Williston.
With almost 200 in the area on a daily basis, you’d think it wouldn’t be difficult, but companies are generally cautious and refer you to corporate heads.
Through the company Statoil, the Herald was finally able to swing a rig tour which involved a hydraulic fracturing site and a multi-well pad.
I wasn’t sure what I’d be walking into and unfortunately the times came during down sessions in the drilling/fracking processes.
Regardless, the frack site and drill rig was still as playground for the most part.
