Oil industry in North Dakota flat due to lack of fracking crews



North Dakota – Oil authorities claim that the industry in North Dakota is stagnating due to a shortage of workers to frack wells.

As a result of the state’s workforce shortage, workers for fracking crews are in short supply.

According to State Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms, there are currently eight teams working throughout the state.

At today’s oil prices, Helms thinks that at least 20 teams would be working in the state.
