North Dakota oil group invests in worker training
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A North Dakota oil group is offering experienced oil workers a chance to advance their careers at a time when the industry is setting production records in the state.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that the North Dakota Petroleum Council has hired a company to offer training for workers who have around two years of experience and are emerging leaders and managers.
Kari Cutting is the vice president of the Petroleum Council. She says the training sessions teach workers communication and skills needed to oversee groups.
Lynn Helms is the director of the Department of Mineral Resources. He says the state’s oil industry produced nearly 1.4 million barrels a day in October, a more than 2 percent increase over the previous month.
