North Dakota's oil production increased by about 2,375 barrels a day in July, after dropping by about 20,000 barrels the month before.

 

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's oil production increased by about 2,375 barrels a day in July, after dropping by about 20,000 barrels the month before.

The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.029 million barrels of oil daily in July, up from 1.027 million barrels in June. North Dakota's production record was set in December 2014 at 1.22 million barrels daily.

North Dakota also produced 1.69 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in July, up from 1.66 billion cubic feet daily in June.

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

There were 33 drill rigs operating in North Dakota's oil patch on Friday, which is up two rigs from the July average.
