MDU Resources Subsidiary Sells Dakota Prairie Refining to Tesoro
BISMARCK, ND--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - MDU Resources Group, Inc. (NYSE: MDU) announced today that its subsidiary, WBI Energy, Inc., has sold Dakota Prairie Refining LLC to Tesoro Refining & Marketing Company LLC, an affiliate of Tesoro Corporation.WBI Energy had been equal partners in building and operating the refinery with Calumet North Dakota LLC, a subsidiary of Calumet Specialty Products Partners LP. To effect the sale of the refinery to Tesoro, WBI Energy on June 27 acquired Calumet North Dakota's 50 percent membership interests.Dakota Prairie Refining is capable of processing up to 20,000 barrels per day of Bakken crude oil and can produce approximately 8,000 barrels per day of diesel fuel, as well as the byproducts naphtha and atmospheric tower bottoms. Located just west of Dickinson, North Dakota, the refinery began operating in May 2015 and employs approximately 75 people."The refinery is operating well, which is a testament to the good work our employees have done in starting up and running the plant," said David L. Goodin, president and CEO of MDU Resources. "Despite strong operations, the financial results from the refinery have been challenged because of low commodity prices. As a publicly traded corporation and a longtime North Dakota company, we felt a responsibility to our shareholders and to the state to find a solution that addressed the refinery's financial challenges while ensuring it would continue operating and contributing to its neighboring communities and the state."With the sale of the refinery, MDU Resources anticipates an after-tax impairment in the second quarter from these discontinued operations in the range of $150 million-$160 million, subject to customary closing adjustments. "Selling the refinery reduces our risk by decreasing our exposure to commodity prices, and it allows us to sharpen our focus on the growth opportunities at our ongoing businesses," Goodin said. "As we have previously announced, we have a $1.5 billion, five-year capital investment plan at our regulated utility businesses, and we just announced a $50 million potential natural gas pipeline expansion project in North Dakota. This is also peak season for our construction companies, as we work on the $1.4 billion in backlog we previously announced."Forward-Looking Statements

MDU Resources Pipeline Expansion in Eastern North Dakota and Western Minnesota
BISMARCK, ND--(Marketwired - June 13, 2016) - WBI Energy, Inc., the pipeline and midstream subsidiary of MDU Resources Group, Inc. (NYSE: MDU), today announced plans to build an approximately 38-mile pipeline with the primary purpose of delivering natural gas supply to eastern North Dakota and far western Minnesota. An open season seeking capacity commitments on WBI Energy's Valley Expansion Project was initiated today, and will be open until July 15. WBI Energy has received significant interest in the project from its customers in the region, which has driven the project.The proposed pipeline would connect the Viking Gas Transmission Company pipeline near Felton, Minnesota, to WBI Energy's existing pipeline near Mapleton, North Dakota. Cost of the expansion project is estimated at $50 million."The Valley Expansion Project will provide another source of natural gas to help fuel industrial and commercial growth in the area, and will greatly enhance supply security for existing end users in eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota," said David L. Goodin, president and CEO of MDU Resources.North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple for several years has been a proponent of bringing more natural gas supply to the Red River Valley. "A project like the Valley Expansion is, frankly, a long-time coming, and I congratulate WBI Energy for its commitment to making it happen. This project will encourage continued growth in eastern North Dakota," Dalrymple said. "Whether it's industrial and commercial facilities, new natural gas-fired electric-generation plants or even taps to local farmers for drying grain, I expect we will see numerous benefits from this expansion in this important area of our state."As initially designed, the pipeline will be able to transport 40 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. With minor enhancements, it will be able to transport significantly more product if required, based on capacity requested during the open season or as needed in the future as the region's needs grow. WBI Energy has begun the process of identifying a route for the project and, once the necessary permitting and regulatory work is completed, construction could begin in early 2018 with completion expected late that same year. The pipeline, from permitting through construction and operation, will be under the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, similar to the existing WBI Energy pipeline system."We're excited to announce this project and to be a part of growth efforts and increased supply reliability in the region," said Martin A. Fritz, president and CEO of WBI Energy. "From the Valley Expansion Project in the east to our multiple system expansions this year in northwestern North Dakota, our team is committed to meeting the needs of our customers through increased natural gas transportation capacity. The upcoming open season will help us secure capacity commitments for the Valley Expansion Project and will initiate the process for obtaining the necessary permits and regulatory approvals. We're looking forward to proceeding with this important project."Parties interested in learning more about the project, including open-season participation, should refer to WBI Energy's website; open season information can be found in the "Expansion Plans and Open Season" section at http://transmission.wbienergy.com. General project information can be found at www.wbienergy.com/wbienergy/transmission/valley-expansion-project. Parties also can contact a representative as referenced below.Forward-Looking Statements
The information in this release includes certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Nonetheless, actual results may differ materially from the projected results expressed in the forward-looking statements.
