STANTON, N.D. (AP) - A company has received preliminary approval for a man camp between Hazen and Beulah to house workers building a $500 million urea fertilizer plant in the area.

The Mercer County Planning and Zoning Commission recommended a plan by Civeo Corp. to move unused oil patch units from Dickinson into Coal Country on Thursday night.

Planning official Wes Klein tells the Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1MqISrA ) that zoning experts are concerned about Highway 200 traffic safety and the possibility of dangerous caverns from old underground coal mines underneath the proposed site.

Civeo wants the man camp to start with 100 beds in 50 units and expand to 200 beds if need grows for the Basin Electric Power Cooperative plant.

The county commission must give final approval. It’s expected to discuss the issue Jan. 6.
