Survey: 89% of North Dakotans support oil boom, 84% say state is headed in the right direction

Ness unveiled a recent survey the Petroleum Council conducted to gauge perceptions of oil and gas development in the state and to identify areas of concern.

Statewide, 84 percent of respondents indicated the state is headed in the right direction and 89 percent indicated they favor oil development, according to the survey.

The survey’s statewide findings were based on telephone interviews with 600 North Dakotans. The results had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
