North Dakota posts 1.2 million barrels of oil daily in July; down slightly from record pace


BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota drillers are still producing oil at a near-record pace despite depressed crude prices.

The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.2 million barrels of oil daily in July, down slightly from June. The July production was 27,000 barrels per day less than the record set in December.

North Dakota also produced a record 1.65 million cubic feet of natural gas in June.

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