During another busy day in the Bakken on Thursday morning, Luke Taylor is on the phone at his desk. Taylor is talking to someone about accounts receivable. He's busy this sunny July day at his company's complex in his hometown, but then, he's always busy.
"We just built our shop a little more than a year ago and it's already too small," Taylor said after completing his call. "We thought it would be too big when we were planning it."
For Luke Taylor, the Williston Basin is more than just the United States’ latest booming oil region. Taylor, like many entrepreneurs, saw the potential for business growth in the basin at the time he founded LT Enterprises, but the region is not an opportunity for national expansion of his trucking company or just the latest trendy oil play – it’s home.
