WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas was the 10th highest oil producer in the U.S. as of September 2013.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration says Kansas produced about 3.8 million barrels of crude oil in September. By comparison, Texas produced nearly 82 million barrels.

The Kansas Geological Survey says overall oil production in Kansas as of August 2013 was at about 31 million barrels. That compares to 29 million barrels in the first eight months of 2012. Part of that increase likely was due to 302 new drilling wells recorded in 2013.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1jEbRjI) natural gas production in Kansas was down as of mid-2013. Kansas produced about 199 billion cubic feet of gas in the first eight months of 2012, but that fell to about 195 billion cubic feet through August 2013.
