It can process up to 20,000 barrels of Bakken oil a day, and turn it into about 7,000 barrels of diesel. MDU says it could take close to 500 construction workers to build the plant, and create 100 permanent jobs.
"Those are the types of jobs that we`re looking for in our area. Jobs that will be here whether we have $29 oil or $129 oil. So we`re real excited about that," said Dickinson Mayor Dennis Johnson.
MDU and Calumet are investing $300 million to build the plant. They hope to start construction this spring, and finish the refinery by the end of 2014.
