While oil production continues to drop, natural gas makes gains.
It’s reached almost 1.7 million cubic feet per day — just shy of an all-time record.
 
At the same time, flaring of natural gas is down to about 10 percent.
On this graph, the black line shows gas production growing over the last few years with that black line.
The orange and blue bars show the amount of gas flared from wells connected, and not connected to pipelines.
Both have shrunk to a fraction of what they once were.
 
North Dakota has come a long way in terms of flaring.
This time in 2011, the state was flaring more than a third of their natural gas.
