North Dakota’s oil and gas industry posted record levels of production in August as the state produced nearly 1.3 million barrels of oil and 2.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas on a daily basis.

“This is the first and maybe the only time that I get to say this, but we had zero days when it was too windy to frac wells,” stated Lynn Helms, North Dakota Dept. of Mineral Resources director, during his monthly Director’s Cut on Oct. 12. “I’ve never seen that in all the time that we’ve been tracking weather and doing these Director’s Cuts.”
