A Williston, North Dakota landowner required a local oil producer to build more advanced containment systems than the earthen berms the company typically used. The producer also needed a solution for wet and slippery conditions within the containments.


TrueNorth Steel provided many components, including its innovative containment systems, to protect the new well sites near the Missouri River. In addition, TrueNorth developed and installed 2,100 feet of raised, steel walkway inside the containments.
