WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A Texas-based oil and gas company has opened a multimillion-dollar regional office and pipe yard in North Dakota.

Brigham Exploration Co. CEO Ben Brigham tells the Williston Herald that the 14,000-square-foot facility west of Williston is the company's first outside of Austin, Texas. He says it shows the company's commitment to the community.

The facility has office and shop space, sleeping quarters for executives who come to town on business, the pipe yard and a temporary housing camp for about 50 workers.
