1. OIL & GAS

'De-escalating' war of words in Colo. still an elusive goal for top industry group

You'd think she was talking about nuclear warfare. Tucked in a Washington, D.C., steakhouse in the shadow of the Capitol dome, Tisha Schuller peppers a conversation with words like "de-escalation," "polarization" and "high-octane." Her tone is familiar in the clashes over energy development in Colorado, pitting the U.S. oil and gas industry against communities that don't trust it. As president of the Colorado Oil & Gas Association, Schuller has seen tensions boil over, making it hard for drillers, communities and conservationists to find common ground.

2. SHALE OIL

Tensions build around N.D. boomtown's housing crisis

Developers of the proposed Bakken Village imagine a hamlet emerging from the western North Dakota grasslands, a modern-day version of the famed 1950s-era planned community, Levittown, N.Y., or one of Henry Ford's company towns. If completed, the village would provide affordable housing for oil workers and their families, according to the developers, creating from scratch North Dakota's first new town in decades. But the project's developers withdrew their bid to incorporate northeast of Williston in Williams County, putting the fate of the village in limbo.
