BISMARCK, North Dakota — The North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources says the state's oil production dropped by about 25,000 barrels a day in September.
The agency says the state produced an average of 1.1 million barrels of oil daily in September. The September production was about 60,000 barrels per day less than the record set in December.
North Dakota also produced 1.6 million cubic feet of natural gas in September. That's down slightly from the record set in July.
The September tally is the latest figure available because oil production numbers typically lag at least two months.
