WATFORD CITY, ND - JULY 30: A gas flare is seen in an aerial view in the early morning hours of July 30, 2013 near Watford City, North Dakota. Gas flares are caused when pressure release valves release excess natural gas from an oil pumpjack; the gas is then ignited to burn off the fumes. North Dakota has seen a boom in oil production thanks to new drilling techniques including horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
