A boost in the workforce helped Williams County add 66 producing oil wells in May, increasing daily production by more than 21,000 barrels that month, the latest figures show.
The significant jump – a 23 percent increase in oil production over April – was due to additional crews that do hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, said Lynn Helms, director of Mineral Resources.
Helms said he expects another big jump in Williams County oil production when June numbers are released as the frack crews continue to work on those idle wells.
