Dakota Plains

Dakota Plains Holdings, Inc. is an integrated midstream energy company operating the Pioneer Terminal with services that include outbound crude oil storage, logistics, and rail transportation and inbound frac sand logistics. The Pioneer Terminal is located in Mountrail County, North Dakota, where it is uniquely positioned to exploit opportunities in the heart of the Bakken and Three Forks plays of the Williston Basin.  The Williston Basin of North Dakota and Montana is the largest onshore oil production source in North America where the lack of available pipeline capacity provides a long-term and increasing surplus of crude oil available for the core business of the company.  Its frac sand business provides services for UNIMIN Corporation – one of the world’s leading producers of quartz proppant and largest supplier of frac sand to E&P operating companies in the Williston Basin.  Dakota Plains was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Wayzata, Minnesota.
