Hydraulic Fracturing (Hydrofracking): North Dakota

A legal resource guide for information relating to hydrofracking including primary and secondary source materials, quick links, and database resources.

North Dakota

Fracking in North Dakota is concentrated in the Western part of the state in the Bakken and Three Forks formations. Just like many other states, North Dakota requires that companies report the chemicals used in fracking fluid; however, companies can file for an exemption to this requirement based on trade secrets.

The Oil and Gas Division of the North Dakota Industrial Commission Department of Mineral Resources is responsible for regulating fracking in the state.
