     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators say the state's oil production remained at a near-record level in March. The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.39 million barrels of oil daily in March. That was down from a record 1.4 million barrels a day from the record set in January.
 
     North Dakota also produced a record 2.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in March, up from 2.6 billion cubic feet in February. There were 15,353 wells producing in March. That's down 56 wells from the record set in January.
 
     The March tallies are the latest figures available. There were 65 drill rigs operating in North Dakota today, down one from the March average.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A state judge has ruled that North Dakota regulators properly refrained from becoming involved in a dispute over the location of an $800 million oil refinery being planned near Theodore Roosevelt National Park, sparing developers from a potentially lengthy delay in construction. Meridian Energy is building the Davis Refinery just 3 miles from the park. Environmental groups worry about pollution. Meridian says the facility will be the "cleanest refinery on the planet."

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says he'll appeal the dismissal of the state's lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company over opioid abuse. A judge threw out the state's claim on Friday, ruling essentially that Purdue Pharma doesn't control its product after it enters the market. North Dakota and five other states filed lawsuits a year ago accusing a pharmaceutical company of using deceptive marketing to boost drugs sales that fueled opioid overdose deaths.

     WHITE EARTH, Minn. (AP) - The White Earth Band of Ojibwe in Minnesota is joining the long list of plaintiffs suing drug companies over the opioid crisis. A complaint filed in U.S. District Court says the tribe filed the lawsuit for the public health and safety of its members and to recover money spent because of false, deceptive and unfair marketing.

    KFGO reports the tribe says 28 percent of Minnesota babies born addicted to opiates are Native American even though Native Americans account for just 2 percent of the state's population. About 2,000 local governments, along with unions, hospitals and Native American tribes are suing various industry players including drug makers, distributors and pharmacies.

     OAKES, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a man from Texas was killed when he lost control of his SUV on a gravel road in North Dakota. Sixty-three-year-old Walter Tatum Jr. died at a hospital in Oakes Tuesday after he crashed on a Dickey County road and rolled over in a ditch.

     MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - Erosion has indefinitely closed about six miles of scenic roadway in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Water under the road has caused it to slump around the Cottonwood Campground to the Badlands Overlook in the park's south unit. Park officials say there's no timetable to repair the road and no funding is available.
