Sex and the Oil City

In 2006, the Parshall Oil Field was discovered in North Dakota, and oil companies joined a frenzied rush to extract the black gold. Thousands of oil workers moved in to take high-paying jobs in the industry. Unusually high incomes, boredom and long working hours in a mostly male environment combine to create the perfect marketplace for traffickers selling sex and drugs. Incidents of road death and domestic violence have also risen dramatically.

Watch "Sex and the Oil City" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
