DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — The foundation has been laid for a new diesel refinery in western North Dakota.

Bismarck-based MDU Resources Group Inc. and Indianapolis-based Calumet Specialty Products Partners are building the Dakota Prairie Refinery west of Dickinson. Officials have said it could cost up to $300 million.

The facility will process crude from the rich Bakken and Three Forks formations in western North Dakota, helping meet an unprecedented need for diesel fuel in the booming oil patch.

The Dickinson Press reports that administrators will move into their office building in about two weeks.

The facility is slated to be completed in late 2014.
