A $200 million, 20,000-barrel-a-day clean fuels oil refinery could be operating near Devils Lake within three years.
The refinery, similar to one being built in Dickinson, would employ about 100 people and could create as many as 400 spin-off jobs in the area, according to Rachel Lindstrom, executive director of Forward Devils Lake, the region's economic development agency.
