County commission approves permit for diesel refinery near Dickinson

DICKINSON, N.D. — The Stark County Commission has approved a permit for a proposed $325 million diesel refinery near Dickinson.

The Dickinson Press reports the commission approved the request Tuesday to rezone 274 acres of land between Dickinson and South Heart from agricultural to industrial for the refinery's construction.

A subsidiary of Bismarck-based MDU Resources Group Inc. is planning the refinery that could be completed in 2014.

Officials have said that it would produce up to 10,000 barrels of diesel per day.
