  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Houston company has gotten zoning approval for a $25 million proppant distribution facility near Gladstone, in western North Dakota.
    The Bismarck Tribune reports that Gladstone officials granted the zoning request to Carbo Ceramics Inc. for an 85-acre site north of the city.
    Carbo Ceramics officials have said the plant will be the company's largest distribution operation for proppant, which are tiny ceramic balls used by drillers to increase the recovery of crude.
    Officials say the plant could employ up to 25 workers and open next year.
