About Enerbase Cooperative Services

In 1928, a group of Minot laboring citizens (mostly railroad men) began to investigate the possibilities of organizing a cooperative oil company. They had been trying to operate a cooperative store and when it became a stock company instead of a cooperative and failed, the original promoters began to look at the very high margins in petroleum products. This group invited several farmers to join them and in 1928 they incorporated under the name of the Minot Cooperative Oil Company. On June 28, 1928, the incorporators met, adopted By-Laws, and elected a Board of Directors. Each prospective member was sold two shares of stock at $25.00 each. In July 1928 the North Dakota Farmers Union put their stamp of approval on the new cooperative. The first stockholders meeting was held November 10, 1928, with 92 members present.

Today, nearly a century later, the cooperative is still going strong. Still owned by the patrons and operated by a local producer board, decisions for the cooperative are made locally, right here in Minot. Enerbase now owns and operates twelve Cenex-branded convenience stores and is a major supplier of Cenexfuels, lubricants and propane to area businesses and producers. The Minot facility also boasts an extensive parts department for agricultural producers as well as a hardware store and car care center.
