WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota attorney general’s office has shut down two contractors after surprise inspections on the oil patch.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1r6RmOa) that Wednesday’s tour found an additional seven contractors in the Williston area who could be disciplined depending upon further investigation.

The inspectors visited 33 sites and inspected 131 contractors.

Parrell Grossman, director of the attorney general’s consumer protection division, says contractor licensing and registration compliance is a “significant issue” in western North Dakota.

Grossman says the violations could result in projects being shut down for three days to a week or more.
