In 1928, a group of Minot laboring citizen (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. They found that gasoline cost 4 cents per gallon plus 7 cents freight and that it was selling for 25 cents to 27 cents per gallon. 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. In July 1928 the North Dakota Farmers Union put their stamp of approval on the new cooperative.

Today Enerbase’s service area ranges from the Washburn area all the north to Glenburn, where they have a c-store.  They own and operate ten Cenex-branded c-stores (seven in Minot, one in Ryder, one in Washburn and one in Glenburn), offer bulk petroleum, lubricant and propane sales and delivery.  Enerbase also has full-service agronomy centers in Washburn and Hazen, and anhydrous locations in Falkirk and Underwood. The cooperative also operates a service center in Minot that services cars to semi-trucks. In the machinery and parts department, Enerbase carries a wide selection of shortline equipment ranging from augers and conveyors to feed mixers and grain bins.  Our sales team backs all equipment with exceptional service after the sale.
