Rigs Don't Matter -- North Dakota Sets All-Time Crude Oil Produciton Record As Well As BOE Production Record -- Despite Low Rig Count -- August 15, 2019

Stayin' alive -- the Bakken theme song. LOL.

Stayin' Alive, The Bee Gees

Posted. Data being updated now.

Director's Cut released. See link above.

I'm going swimming.

Good luck to everyone.

But "we're" gonna set a record 'cause rigs don't matter.

Wow, we're having fun now.

1.424625 - 1.394648 = 0.030 million bopd = 30,000 bopd increase month-over-month.

That's about a 2% increase, in crude oil production, month-over-month.

So, if rigs don't matter, what matters?
  • total number of producing wells
  • new wells coming on line each month
  • frack spreads
For flaring data, see this post. June, 2019, flaring data at this post.

  • May, 2019: 1,394,648 bopd (final)

    • April crude oil production "increased" by 2,347 bopd or 0.1688%
Crude oil production:

Delta, crude oil:

  • May, 2019 (preliminary):1,394,648 bopd
  • April, 2019 (final): 1,392,485
  • delta, month-over-month, bbls: 29,977 bopd increase
  • delta, month-over-month, percent: a 2.15% increase
Natural gas production:
  • June, 2019 (preliminary): 2,876,689 (new all-time high)
  • May, 2019 (final): 2,819,443 mcfpd
  • April, 2019 (final): 2,833,131 mcfpd (this is now the all-time high)
BOE:
  • June, 2019: 2,876,689 MCF/day ( all-time high) = 479,368 boe (new all-time high) + 1,394,648 = 1,874,116 boepd
Producing wells:
  • June, 2019: 15,741 (preliminary - new all-time high)
  • May, 2019: 15,703

  • April: 129
  • March: 133 
  • February: 109
DUCs
  • waiting to be completed (DUCs): 983 (down 2)
  • inactive wells: 1,553 (down)
Gas capture [later: see this post]

  • statewide: 76%
  • FBIR: 63%
  • non-FBIR Bakken: 80%
Time to build that petrochemical plant!
