North Dakota's oil production slipped slightly in August but still remains at a near-record pace despite depressed crude prices.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's oil and gas production slipped slightly in August but still remains at a near-record pace despite depressed crude prices.

The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.1 million barrels of oil daily in August, down about 20,000 barrels from July. The August production was about 41,000 barrels per day less than the record set in December.

North Dakota also produced 1.64 million cubic feet of natural gas in August. That's down slightly from the record set in July.

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