North Dakota crude oil production slips slightly in April to 1.16 million barrels per day


BISMARCK, North Dakota — The state Department of Mineral Resources says North Dakota's crude oil production dropped slightly in April.

The agency says the state produced an average of 1.16 million barrels of oil daily in April, down about 22,000 barrels from the March daily average.

Data show North Dakota natural gas production increased slightly in April.

The agency says 1.54 million cubic feet of natural gas was produced daily in April. In March, the state produced an average of 1.51 million cubic feet daily.

April statistics are the latest available because oil production numbers typically lag at least two months.
