Bruce Gjovig talks more innovation in the Bakken

Bruce Gjovig

Bruce Gjovig is no stranger to pioneering and innovation in business.  The founder of UND’s Center of Innovation joined MacTalk to discuss his latest writing project which chronicles agricultural innovation in northwest Minnesota and North Dakota.

While on the subject of innovation Bruce, a native of western North Dakota,  proudly recounts the petroleum extraction revolution that began in the Bakken which has made the United States an energy exporter and changed strategic equations for the nation. However, he’s most excited about current efforts underway in the Bakken to continue that extraction revolution by extracting a higher percentage of petroleum from the shale in the Bakken.
