OKLAHOMA CITY (TNS) — Oklahoma set another oil production record in April, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported last week.
Crude production in the Sooner State for the month was 18.5 million barrels, an increase of nearly 400,000 compared to March, when about 18.1 million barrels were produced.
Marketed natural gas production in April, while not at a record, also posted an impressive number at about 262 billion cubic feet.
The data shows production of both continues to climb, even while numbers of working drilling rigs are significantly lower than what they were a year ago.
Additionally, the number of drilled but uncompleted wells in the Anadarko Basin, where about half of Oklahoma’s active drilling is taking place, remains quite high. (By Jack Money The Oklahoman, the Examiner-Enterprise)
