BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota oil drillers produced an average of about 1.04 million barrels of oil a day in May.

The state's Department of Mineral Resources says the production was up from about 1 million barrels a day in April.

The North Dakota oil patch saw a record 10,892 producing wells in May, up from 10,665 wells in April.

The state produced 36.9 million cubic feet of natural gas in May, an all-time high. That's up from 34.1 million cubic feet of natural gas in April.
