Working in Williston all about being Resilient

(Press Release - Administration) 

While oil and gas markets may have been slow to wake up from hibernation during the early months of 2017, the northwest region, by contrast, has been bustling with activity.

And while I'm always inclined to lead with our successes, sometimes the sales pitch tactic gets old and people just want to know the bottom line: what's really happening and where are we headed. With that in mind, I'm here to tell you that for better or worse, we have one heck of a season ahead of us in the northwest.
