North Dakota’s crude oil production continues to set records as February’s output was pegged at averaging 558,254 barrels per day, up from the previous record of 546,318 in January, according to the state’s Department of Mineral Resources. Based on trends the past year, it's likely North Dakota's production this month will surpass Alaska's to make the state second-ranked behind Texas. A record 210 rigs were drilling Thursday in the state's Oil Patch.
Oil and gas industry executives say infrastructure challenges in western North Dakota could limit the number of drilling rigs in the Bakken system's rich Williston Basin. There are close to 220 drilling rigs in the Williston Basin. Growth could be capped at 300 rigs in the next few years until infrastructure can catch up.
North Dakota produced a record 152.9 million barrels of crude in 2011, up more than 35 percent from the previous record of 113 million set a year earlier, state officials said today. The state is poised to best, within months, California and Alaska, which are the nation's third and second oil-producing states, respectively, behind Texas. Daily production was up to a record 534,000 barrels per day in December.
