WILLISTON -- Natural gas production in the Williston Basin could more than quadruple current levels, pushing North Dakota into a more leading role in supplying the U.S. natural gas market, according to a study released Wednesday.

The report also projects that oil production in the Williston Basin could grow to 1.8 million barrels per day by 2017 and more than 2 million barrels per day by 2025. May production was about 640,000 barrels per day.
