Company keeps permits active in stalled oil refinery project near Theodore Roosevelt NP

North Dakota environmental officials have determined a company planning an oil refinery near Theodore Roosevelt National Park has made enough progress this summer to keep its construction permit active after it faced delays and received two extensions.

Project developer Meridian Energy Group has entered into what it calls a “critical and central” contract with the engineering firm McDermott to design and construct major pieces of equipment for the Davis Refinery. The project is opposed by environmental groups in part because of its proximity to the national park in the Badlands.
