BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A conference that focuses on the present condition and future of North Dakota’s oil patch is coming to Bismarck for the first time.

The three-day Bakken Conference and Expo starts Monday at the Bismarck Event Center. The event has been held in Grand Forks in the past.

Event director Luke Geiver says more than 500 people and 60 exhibitors are expected to attend.

Presentations include new hydraulic fracturing strategies, drilling processes, and more efficient construction methods.

The recently completed Dakota Access pipeline also is up for discussion, with a panel to dissect what was learned from the nearly year-long struggle over building the project in North Dakota.
