     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The head of the biggest railroad hauling North Dakota crude says the future of oil shipments depends on proving that it can be done safely.  BNSF Executive Chairman Matt Rose spoke on Wednesday at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, which has drawn more than 4,000 people for three days of events.
 
     Rose says the railroad is committed to preventing accidents like the Dec. 30 crash outside Casselton that left an ominous cloud over the town and led some residents to evacuate.  He says the railroad has learned from the disaster and has done such things as decreased train speeds in some areas and increased inspections.  Rose says "BNSF believes at the end of the day that every rail accident is preventable."

     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.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Bakken oil formation is synonymous with North Dakota to many, but other areas of the play are producing oil as well.  Melinda Yurkowski is an assistant chief geologist with the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy. She says 65,000 of the 480,000 barrels of crude the province produces per day come from the Bakken.
 
     Yurkowski on Wednesday spoke at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck. The province of Saskatchewan and North Dakota are sponsors of the annual conference.  Yurkowski says Saskatchewan could boost its Bakken production numbers in the future, but she says the province has no target production numbers in place.
 
     The Bakken formation stretches across North Dakota, Montana, and Canada's Saskatchewan and Manitoba provinces.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A spill of 100 barrels of brine and 140 barrels of oil has been reported near Crosby.  The North Dakota Department of Health on Wednesday said 90 barrels of brine and 65 barrels of oil have been recovered, but some reached a nearby farm field and shelter belt.
 
     Operator Samson Resources Company reported the release to authorities on Monday. The company says the failure of a valve on a saltwater disposal well led to the spill.
 
     A state inspector is at the site located in northwest North Dakota less than 20 miles from the Canadian border.  A state official says the company is in the process of cleaning the site and is monitoring for evidence of "stressed vegetation."  Samson Resources is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

     THOMPSON, N.D. (AP) - An eastern North Dakota mayor is joining other municipal leaders around the country in supporting same-sex marriage, becoming the first mayor in the state to formally join the effort.
 
     Thompson Mayor Karyn Hippen says she's proud to be the 400th member to join Mayors for the Freedom to Marry, a coalition of same-sex marriage supporting mayors organized by an advocacy group.
 
     Four gay couples announced Wednesday they were suing Montana over its constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. The lawsuit makes North and South Dakota the two remaining states in the country with same-sex marriage bans and no lawsuits challenging them. A lawsuit in South Dakota is expected soon.
 
     Thompson says she has a 23-year-old son who is gay and wants to see him get married someday.
