"Slips, Trips and Falls."
That's State mineral resources director Lynn Helms' theme for the January director’s cut briefing – where he presented November’s oil and gas production.
"Production did slide -- or slip -- from October to November," Helms said. "About 10,000 barrels a day."
It dropped from 1,043,693 barrels a day in October, to 1,033,693 barrels a day in November. And Helms said about 80 percent of that slip happened on the Ft. Berthold reservation.
