Bismarck Tribune, Amy R. Sisk | Jan 17, 2020
Figures for the gas and oil production within North Dakota held steady from previous months according to the most recent study. The oil production dropped slightly compared to October. In October the Bakken produced 1.518 million barrels per day and in November the produced number is 1.515 million barrels per day. Gas production rose slightly between October and November with gas production toping at 3.134 billion cubic feet per day. The oil production is expected to remain steady throughout the next winter season within the Bakken said State Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms. Due to the winter weather and instances of the season, it is expected for operators to reduce activity and production. Helms predicts that there could be the reduction of production due to road restrictions and limitations. Within the month of November, the gas industry flared off 2% less compared to that of October. Helms believes that the numbers will drop significantly with the incorporation of the new Oneok’s natural gas liquids pipeline in December.
The wastewater gathering pipelines that are designed, built, and operated by Henry Hill Oil Services continue to provide producers a more cost effective and efficient method of transporting production byproducts.
