On Monday's "Montana Talks" I mentioned this stat about Bakken oil production that was included in the latest "hotsheet" from The Big Sky Business Journal.

For those wondering where the numbers came from, here's what the hotsheet had to say:

An online report from OilPrice.com says, “The Bakken crude oil production has started to grow again and is expected to beat in the first half of 2018 its own production record of 1.23 million bpd from December 2014.” The number of active drilling rigs in North Dakota is currently at 60, “is way below the 190 active rigs in early April 2014, but double the 29 rigs in April 2016.
