North Dakota is located in the northern most part of North America by the border of Canada.
In 2001, there was an oil boom in North Dakota, which started producing 31 million barrels of oil a year. By 2007 the state was producing 45 million barrels and in 2010 North Dakota produced 113 million barrels of oil.
There is enough oil to drill in North Dakota to last another 50 years. There are already over 6,000 oil wells and oil drilling more and more everyday.
Each oil dig site results in about 120 jobs, so you can imagine how many jobs are available here. There are so many oil jobs that the local businesses are having trouble finding employees to fill non-oil related jobs.
