About me

I’m a Forum Communications Co. reporter stationed in Williston, N.D. I started reporting from North Dakota Oil Country in February 2012. Prior to that, I worked as a reporter for The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead, most recently assigned to higher education.

I plan to cover any stories related to the oil boom in western North Dakota. I am new to covering oil development, so I welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please contact me at adalrymple@forumcomm.com or (701) 580-6890. My mailing address is P.O. Box 7669, Williston, ND 58801.

  1. Great stories, Amy. Though I have a vested interest in the Bakken and North Dakota I still like reading about all the related articles. North Dakota could be transformed economically and every other way for a long time because of the oil.

    Though your blog has its focus on oil, don’t forget about the potash in North Dakota. That field which extends into Canada has been described as one the largest in the world.

    In North Dakota alone, the estimated deposits are as high as 50 billion tons with a current market value in the trillions.

    PS. Will Williston become Las Vegas North?

  2. I think you are doing a great job and I thought that before I knew you were not related to the Governor. I for one, appreciate how you just report the stories without injecting politics into the stew.

  3. Are you doing investigating reporting or reporting the news the local governments and energy officials are giving you? We seem to hear about oil spills, low fines, and other questionable regulatory policies from the Rachel Maddow show and the New York Times. I’m a moderate, but these are important issues that will be talked about after the boom is over. Please keep in mind journalists as well as politicians will be held accountable in future months and years when we discuss what happened. Books will be written on this. The in-state reporting on the boom in the Fargo Forum is much different than out-of state reporting. We do not need feel good stories-there is too much at stake.
