FBI asks oil industry to partner against crime

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The FBI wants the oil industry’s help in tackling crime in North Dakota’s oil patch.

John Dalziel is a supervisory senior resident agent with the FBI. He says local and state law enforcement are overtaxed by the growth in the oil country, making it difficult to go after certain crimes.

He says the FBI has just two agents in the oil patch and the industry’s cooperation is key to combatting crime.

Danziel on Wednesday spoke at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck.

The FBI has created an online special interest group for the oil and gas sector where members of the industry can share information with the agency. They bureau is asking the workforce to use the group to report observations that could indicate criminal activity.


  1. You’re definition of Overtaxation and my definition of Overtaxation are two different things. 😉 Ambiguous phrases should be avoided in headlines.
