Monthly Meeting Recap - December 2019
Our monthly meeting was held Tuesday, December 3rd. The meeting room was packed to listen and see the program from Jared Iverson from Oasis Petroleum. We had to bring more chairs in to accommodate the crowd. After dinner we provided a recap from the Williston Basin Chapter Awards Banquet and power point from the night. The members that weren’t able to attend really appreciated the update. We only recognize our industry one a year and to recap the awards was appreciated.
