     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum has announced that his chief operating officer is leaving her job. Burgum says Jodi Uecker is retiring in June and will help lead a search for her replacement.
 
     Burgum created the position of COO after he was elected in 2016. The position is comparable to chief of staff in past governors' administrations. She is paid $150,000 annually.
 
     Burgum is known in North Dakota as the godfather of software for building Fargo's Great Plains Software into a billion-dollar business, which he later sold to Microsoft. Uecker also worked at Great Plains Software and Microsoft.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Phoenix woman who has publicly admitted to vandalism along the route of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in South Dakota and Iowa is asking a judge to dismiss her as a defendant in a $1 billion federal racketeering lawsuit.
 
     Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners has sued several groups and individuals for allegedly working to undermine the $3.8 billion pipeline to move North Dakota oil to Illinois. Defendants include Ruby Montoya and Jessica Reznicek.
 
     In July 2017, they released a public statement admitting to damaging valves and setting fire to construction equipment along the pipeline route. But they haven't been criminally charged, and Montoya's attorney maintains ETP hasn't shown any link between Montoya and a criminal enterprise.
 
     Attorney Lauren Regan says Reznicek hasn't yet been served with the racketeering lawsuit.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Cold temperatures contributed to three recent saltwater spills at oil and gas wells in the North Dakota oil patch. The state Oil and Gas Division says the spills happened Friday near New Town and Williston and Saturday near Manning. They totaled 940 barrels.
 
     All three leaks were contained on-site, and most of the spilled saltwater has already been recovered. Saltwater, or brine, is a byproduct of energy production. The spills were reported by Marathon Oil, Oasis Petroleum and Lime Rock Resources, who cited equipment malfunctions. Oil and Gas Division spokeswoman Katie Haarsager tells The Bismarck Tribune that initial reports indicate freezing temperatures were a factor in all three incidents.
 
     The National Weather Service says Williston hit a record 43 degrees below zero on Friday.

    FARGO, ND - Xcel Energy says they will soon distribute nearly $10 million to all North Dakota electricity customers as a result of the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. All Xcel Energy electricity customers in the state will receive a credit on their bills. The refund for a residential electricity customer will average about $46, but will vary based on each customer's actual usage. The North Dakota Public Service Commission approved these refunds last week and customers should receive them as one-time bill credit beginning this spring.
