BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) The Department of Mineral Resources says North Dakota drillers continue to produce oil at a record pace.

The agency says the state produced an average of about 793,250 barrels daily in April. That's up from about 783,000 barrels a day in March.

Data show there were 8,758 producing wells in April. That's up from 8,639 wells in March.

The April tally is the latest figure available because oil production numbers typically lag at least two months.
