BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Top U.S. energy and transportation officials are slated to be in Bismarck for a national energy policy conference on Friday.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple says he will question U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx about conflicting reports over the volatility of crude coming from the state’s oil patch.

U.S. Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp say Moniz they will take Moniz on tours of natural gas factories in Beulah and Tioga. They also plan to tour a site where a well is being drilled using hydraulic fracturing technology.

The senators say the tours are intended to help Moniz “better understand the state’s challenges and opportunities.”
