The “Director’s Cut” report on oil and gas production for June in North Dakota is a mixed bag.
State mineral resources director Lynn Helms said oil and natural gas production in North Dakota set a new record.
"We had a two percent increase in oil production, and a two percent increase in natural gas production -- both of them new all-time highs," Helms said. "Oil production jumped by 30,000 barrels per day, to 1,425,000 barrels a day. And with the associated gas, another record."
