After dropping in February, North Dakota oil production rebounded in March.
In January, North Dakota produced 1,403,808 barrels per day. That dropped in February to 1,335,591. But state mineral resources director Lynn Helms, in his monthly "Director's Cut," reported March production went up, to 1,390.138 barrels per day.
"That's still about 13,000 barrels per day short of the record," Helms said.
Helms said the weather in February and the first half of March was brutal.
"There was literally nothing moving," Helms said.
That changed after mid-March.
