Judge backs state's decision not to require site permit for refinery near Theodore Roosevelt NP

BISMARCK, N.D. — A North Dakota judge has ruled that regulators properly refrained from getting involved in a dispute over the location of an $800 million oil refinery planned near Theodore Roosevelt National Park, sparing developers from a potentially lengthy delay in construction.

The Public Service Commission last year declined to review whether the planned Davis Refinery could be built just 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the park in the western North Dakota Badlands, concluding the refinery will be too small to warrant review under state law.
