North Dakota oil production grows in March as natural gas hits new record

 May 17 2019

North Dakota oil and gas production saw robust increases in March but fell shy of the state’s oil record, the state’s top oil regulator said Wednesday.

Oil production grew 4 percent in March to 1.39 million barrels per day, a “pretty good recovery” after severe winter weather in February hampered production, Director of Mineral Resources Lynn Helms said.

The state set an oil production record in January with 1.4 million barrels per day.
