Baker Hughes representatives offered the group clear information on anticipated amounts and types of chemicals to be stored in the facility's warehouse. They discussed the safety standards of the facility's advanced fire suppression system and noted that Baker Hughes prides itself on upholding safety standards that are above industry standards. Board members also learned of the technical aspect of Baker Hughes' operations and the need for a highly skilled workforce, which is available from Minot Air Force Base's retiree pool.

Technology center operations out of Minot include repair and calibration of oil field equipment. The facility represents a $25 million capital investment and currently employs about 100.
