Want to get an up close and personal view of what's happening in the North Dakota oil patch? Then a Williston company might be the place for you to contact.
DAWA Solutions Group is offering an 11-hour Bakken Field Tour bus trip through parts of the oil field, including a three-hour educational session the night before the tour. The $325 tour does not include the price of a hotel room, and is aimed at investors, community leaders and developers, although the tours will likely also attract tourists, too.
Tour participants won't get to visit the site of an actual oil rig, but will stop nearby a rig to watch the action. The tour also includes a visit to a crew camp, oil and gas infrastructure and commercial and residential construction projects.
We hope the tours are successful, for a couple of reasons. First, we hope bringing more investors and developers to the oil patch will further enhance future business in the oil patch. For someone wanting to find information, guided tours are certainly a more efficient method of visiting oil patch sites than doing it on your own. Second, we hope the tours attract tourist and other visitors from outside North Dakota, who perhaps have misconceptions about exactly what's happening in western North Dakota. An first-hand ride through the oil patch will provide accurate and timely information about the energy business and the real-life challenges brought on by the booming oil industry.
