BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Doug Burgum released the following statement today after signing Senate Bill 2344 to clarify issues related to pore space in underground rock formations.

“This legislation went through seven subcommittees, more than 15 hours of hearings and numerous amendments to address landowner concerns and create certainty for underground injection, which has the potential to enhance oil recovery and further improve the environmental sustainability of North Dakota’s coal industry,” Burgum said. “With the clarifying amendments, we’re confident that the bill protects landowners and preserves their compensation opportunities.”
