Later, 8:13 a.m. CT: I see that the "Daily Activity Report" for yesterday has been corrected.
This morning I see it has been released but the "permits approved" segment seems to be wrong. Look for a correction during the day.
Right now, the report shows that five oil and gas permits were approved, permit numbers #30147 - #30151, inclusive. Those are "old" permits, that were, in fact, renewed yesterday; they were not new permits. "Permit renewals" are generally not in this section but in the "permit renewal" section.
In fact, the NDIC is now up to #32380, which I have posted. In addition, there is a new operator in North Dakota.
Watch for a corrected "Daily Activity Report" later today. Perhaps as early as 8:00 a.m.
The NDIC also released it's monthly Director's Cut yesterday which also appears to have an error, but I will get back to that one later.
