We've all heard rumbling of the oil field activity returning at some point in the very near future. The future may be here in 2017.

We're talking close to 1000 new good paying jobs returning to the Bakken. According to Job Service in Williston, five oil related companies are seeking frack crews for 2017. These companies have close to 850 wells that need to be fracked in the New Year. The jobs vary from rig to rig, it looks like 45 to 65 people per crew will be needed. This could mean a well-needed boost to the state's economy.
