An oil well is gushing out an extra amount of oil in North Dakota

(WDAY TV) -- An oil well is gushing out an extra amount of oil in Western North Dakota.

(WDAY TV) -- A gusher of an oil well out west has the attention of North Dakota regulators.

Department of Mineral Resources director Lynn Helms says a well in McKenzie County is producing 5-thousand barrels of oil per day. The well is on confidential status, so Helms will only say it's located northwest of Watford City.

It's not clear if the 5-thousand barrels per day reflects the well's initial production, or that production is holding up over weeks...even months.
