In 2012 North Dakota produced more crude oil than any other state except Texas,increasing by 250,000 barrels per day from 2011 to 2012.  Puncturing and disturbing the land mandatorily requires a remediation plan and the corresponding reclamation bond.  A North Dakota reclamation bond just like bonds for the Bureau of Land Management and other state environmental agencies, guarantees topsoil salvage and replacement, recontouring, revegetation, slope stability, air/water/stream protection, geochemical considerations, public health and safety, wildlife habitat restoration, and aesthetic impacts.  Reclamation bonds are typically unattractive to surety companies because they are often very long term, non-cancelable obligations.  Surety One, Inc., the nation’s leader in surety is a bonding resource for any operation requiring reclamation bonding. We offer reclamation bond capacity for oil, coal, uranium, metal mining, and hydraulic fracturing “fracking”.  We will write these for ALL state departments of environmental protection, Railroad Commission of Texas, federal Bureau of Land Management. Visit us at, call (787) 333-0222 or (800) 373-2804, or email for a North Dokata reclamation bond application materials or further information regarding surety bonding.
