North Dakota oil production pumps out another record
North Dakota’s oil production has topped itself once again, as the 973,045 barrels of oil produced daily in November represented a 3-percent increase over the previous month and an all-time high for the state.
Natural gas produced during November also hit a new peak, with a daily average of 1.09 billion cubic feet per day. Officials cited warmer than usual weather during the month for the increase.
In addition, the 10,023 oil producing wells in North Dakota during November were also an all-time high and marked the first time the state had ever exceeded 10,000 active wells. While two-thirds of those wells are in the Bakken and Three Forks regions, 93 percent of the state’s oil is pumped from those areas.
