North Dakota drillers pumped a record 2.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in March, with companies capturing 89% of the gas, according to the state's Department of Mineral Resources. Meanwhile, preliminary data show North Dakota oil production fell 1% to 1.16 million barrels per day in March, but Director of Mineral Resources Lynn Helms expects June oil production to break the 1.2-million-barrel-per-day record set in December 2014.
