About This Project is a general news site that focuses on the Western North Dakota oil-producing region. BakkenToday relies upon the resources of Forum Communications Co. newspapers across the Upper Midwest and the staff of the Forum News Service to cover news, lifestyle and recreation stories in what is known as “The Oil Patch,” or western North Dakota and eastern Montana.


Known for being rich with stories about oil production and the oil industry, BakkenToday also contains stories about the lifestyles, sports and entertainment that also help make up what living in “The Oil Patch” is really like.
