  • An oil services company and its subsidiary are facing nearly $30 million in fines for a crew camp violating zoning regulations in North Dakota's oil patch.
    The Williston Herald reports Western Petroleum LLC and its parent company Pilot Logistics are facing fines for violations at a remote crew encampment.
    A conditional use permit for the site was approved for 40 trailers and seven modular units in 2011. But the permits were never renewed.
    A recent county compliance inspection found 30 RVs, hookups for 10 more RVs, seven mobile homes and two houses on the premises. Each structure is to be fined $1,000 per day it was in violation of regulations.
    Pilot representatives say the fines are egregious.
    Crew camps are common forms of housing for workers in oil country.
