North Dakota isn’t the only state benefiting from the oil boom, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar said Friday. Klobuchar toured western North Dakota Friday with Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., to get a firsthand look at the oil and gas development and the infrastructure challenges facing the rapidly growing communities. The senators toured a drilling rig near Williston and watched a demonstration of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. They also toured the Hess Corp. natural gas processing facility in Tioga.Word count: 376
