These first charts are taken from the EIA’s Monthly Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production. The data are through June 2018 and is in thousand barrels per day.
US C+C production was up 231,000 barrels per day in June to 10,674,000 bpd, an all-time high.
Texas was up 165,000 barrels per day in June to 4,410,000 bpd.
New Mexico was up 5,000 barrels per day in June to 657,000 bpd. The Permian extends into New Mexico.
North Dakota was down 16,000 barrels per day in June to 1,220,000 bpd.
Oklahoma was down 3,000 barrels per day in June to 526,000 bpd.
Colorado was down 24,000 barrels per day in June to 423,000 bpd.
California was down 2,000 barrels per dayin June to 462,000 bpd. California peaked in February of 1987 at 1,109,000 bpd.
Alaska was down 45,000 barrels per day in June to 451,000 bpd. June, July, August, and part of September are the prime maintenance months for Alaska. The maintenance includes pigging the pipeline and overhauling the pumps along the pipeline.
The Gulf of Mexico was up 154,000 barrels per day in June to 1,658,000 bpd. Just a couple of years ago the EIA was predicting the GOM to be at almost 2 million barrels per day by now. I really don’t think that is going to happen anytime soon.
I wanted US Less Permian but the EIA doesn’t break it out that way. So I will just have to settle for all the Permian plus Eagle Ford and East Texas. East Texas is in decline while Eagle Ford is still increasing. But my point is the rest of the US seems to be settling out to about where it was in 2015.
