ND posts record 874K barrels of oil daily in July

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota oil drillers continue to produce oil and natural gas at a record pace.

The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 874,460 barrels per day in July. That's up from an average of 821,598 barrels daily in June.

North Dakota's oil patch had a record 9,322 producing wells in July, up from 9,096 wells in June.

North Dakota also produced a record 30 million cubic feet of natural gas in July. That's up from about 28 million cubic feet produced in June.

Regulators say 30 percent of the state's gas production is being burned off because development of the pipelines and processing facilities needed to handle it has not kept pace with production.
