Oil and gas: ND produced record 35M barrels of oil in August

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Industrial Commission says the state produced a record 35 million barrels of oil in August.

Oil production rose from 1,114,421 barrels per day in July to 1,132,331 barrels per day in August.

The statewide natural gas flaring rate hit 27 percent in August. July saw 26 percent of gas flared.

Natural gas is a valuable byproduct of oil production. But it is frequently burned off when there is no infrastructure in place to capture it.

New flaring regulations that went into effect on Oct. 1 require companies to flare no more than 26 percent of gas. Failure to comply could see the state impose production limitations on violators. But the state will not know of violations until October's production numbers are released in December.
