Dakota Prairie Refining

Refinery

Dakota Prairie Refining is the first greenfield fuels refinery to be built in the United States since the late 1970s. Located in western North Dakota, the refinery is designed to process 20,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Bakken crude oil.  Startup operations began in May 2015.

Wagner Industrial Electric was initially contracted to provide site grounding and site lighting services. The scope of work was increased to include power and control systems in the inside battery limits area as well as the outside battery limits area. Wagner Industrial added savings to the project by providing value engineering to lower the cost of installation and accelerate electrical installation.
