KANSAS-OIL AND GAS

 

Kansas oil production up, natural gas down in 2013

 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Fracking in southern Kansas has increased oil production in the state, but natural gas production continued its downward spiral.

 

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the value of both oil and gas produced in Kansas has increased despite the lower gas output.

 

The state produced about 46.8 million barrels of oil in 2013, a 7 percent bump from the 43.7 million barrels in 2012. Most of that increase came from south-central and southwest Kansas.

 

Natural gas production fell 1.5 percent, from 299 billion cubic feet in 2012 to 295 billion cubic feet last year.

 

The Kansas Geological Survey says the value of the natural gas rose from $790 million in 2012 to $1.1 billion last year, while the value of oil rose from $3.7 billion to $4.1 billion.
