Oil Production Doubles in North Dakota
Oil production in North Dakota has more than doubled in the past two years, with crude from the state filling refineries on the East, West and Gulf coasts, the Associated Press reported.
State records show North Dakota oil drillers produced an average of about 558,000 barrels daily in February, up from 262,000 barrels in February 2010, AP said.
Records show the state had 6,726 oil-producing wells in February, or nearly 2,100 more than were operating two years prior.
