BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota's Department of Mineral Resources says the state's oil production increased by about 5,200 barrels a day in November, while natural gas production rose to a record level.

The agency says the state produced an average of 1.17 million barrels of oil daily in November. The November production was about 51,200 barrels per day less than the record set in December 2014.

North Dakota also produced 1.66 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in November, beating the previous record set in July.

The November tally is the latest figure available because oil production numbers typically lag at least two months.

There were 49 drill rigs operating in North Dakota's oil patch on Friday. That's down 15 rigs from November.


This story has been corrected to show 1.66 billion cubic feet of natural gas was produced daily in November.
