North Dakota lawmakers on Tuesday approved a measure to create a pilot project aimed at treating and recycling some of an estimated 1 million tons of oil drilling waste annually for road building and other uses.
Rep. Todd Porter, R-Mandan, said the project is intended to turn “mounds and mounds and piles and piles” of the drilling byproduct into beneficial use.
North Dakota’s House endorsed the bill 87-6; Senators approved it earlier. It now heads to Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s desk for his signature.
