North Dakota also produced 2.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in August, up from 2.3 billion cubic feet in July.

There were 15,144 wells producing in August, up from 14,416 in July.

The August tallies are the latest figures available.

There were 16 drill rigs operating Friday, an increase of four from the August average.
