Oil and Gas Production Hits Milestones

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota oil and gas production hit two milestones in August. Daily production exceeded 900,000 barrels of oil and one billion cubic feet of natural gas for the first time.

The percentage of natural gas flared in August dropped 1 percent to 29 percent. But the volume of gas flared increased from 9.3 billion cubic feet to 9.4 billion cubic feet during the month. Energy leaders say an industry task force will meet to discuss reducing the volume of natural gas that is being flared.

While most of the production numbers were positive, the recent wet weather in October has halted production. McKenzie county which has about one third of the state's drilling rigs has had to close gravel roads to heavy trucks due to conditions. Helms says the closures could have an impact on production as riggs prepare well pads for the winter.
