North Dakota Oil Production Closes in on a Million Barrels Per Day

Posted:

North Dakota oil production soars to another all-time high in November.

The state produced just over 973,000 barrels per day. That's up 28,000 barrels per day from October.

The number of producing wells also reached a new all-time high of 10,023.

On a negative note, flaring rose two percent to 30%.

Director of Mineral Resources Lynn Helms says that's due to the Tioga Gas Plant shutting down for expansion.

He expects flaring numbers to increase until the plant is back on-line this spring.
