Oil and gas companies are allowed to flare valuable natural gas without paying royalties or taxes.  Nothing.  North Dakota’s natural gas is PRESENTLY — an oil corporation’s to waste and pollute by flaring into North Dakota’s atmosphere.

The state produced nearly 1.4 million barrels of oil a day in November, the latest figures available. With that came 2.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.

The industry burned off 21 percent of the gas in November. The North Dakota Industrial Commission headed by Gov. Doug Burgum requires companies to limit that to 12 percent. Operators missed the target for the seventh month in a row in November.

What’s wrong with North Dakota’s system?

The proposed bill makes companies pay taxes and royalties on flared gas!

Come support SB 2332.
