BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Industrial Commission says oil production numbers hit record highs again in the state in June as the state’s booming oil industry continues to grow.

A report released Friday shows oil drillers in the state produced an average of about 1.09 million barrels of oil a day in June.

The state’s Department of Mineral Resources says the production was up from about 1.04 million barrels a day in April.

The North Dakota oil patch saw a record 11,079 producing wells in June, up from 10,902 wells in May.

The state produced 37.5 million cubic feet of natural gas in June, an all-time high. That’s up from 36.9 million cubic feet of natural gas in May.

Oil production numbers typically lag about two months.
