Oil and Gas, and Real Estate Industries
The oil and gas industry is driving the economy in the Williston Basin. The
real estate developers and investors build out the housing, industrial,
commercial and other infrastructure needed to sustain energy and economic
development in the Bakken. Bringing together these two key industries and
their investors will help each to better understand the other and expand
development for their mutual continued success.

analysis of the Institute. He has more than 25 years of experience in energy,
economic and environmental analysis. He will present a survey of current
conditions and an outlook for oil & gas.

will allow investors to make better investment decisions.

Dr. Nancy Hodur, Research Scientist, and Dean Bangsund, North Dakota State
Population and household projections are core metrics used in determining
demand for products, services, and real estate development. Dr. Hodur and her
colleagues have conducted several studies recently including the population
analysis and projections and the recently released economic impact of the

problem. The panel will include representatives from the Bank of North Dakota,
local and regional lenders, and developers discussing case studies.
