U.S. Oil Defies Odds, Races Towards Annual Production Record

Image of post in post detailed view


- The average U.S. oil production for the first three quarters of 2023 is 12.8 million barrels per day (bpd), surpassing the previous record of 12.3 million bpd in 2019.
- At the end of September, weekly production reached 12.9 million bpd, which is 900,000 bpd higher compared to the previous year.
- Although September's production averaged around 12.9 million bpd, July had a slightly higher production at 12.99 million bpd.
- The previous monthly record of 13.0 million bpd was set in November 2019, just shy of the current numbers.
- The first half of 2023 has exceeded the previous record with a production level of 12.69 million bpd.
- Unless there is a significant decrease in production in the fourth quarter, a new annual production record is expected for 2023.
- The surge in production can be attributed to factors such as oil prices and technological advancements like hydraulic fracturing, which have a greater impact than presidential policies.

              Powerful people who have invested in fossil fuels and other industries that depend on fossil fuels don't want renewable energy to succeed

                @lucinda_ramsay They have chosen profit over people.It is very inhumane if you ask me.And its not like they have their own air to breathe so they will suffer while we do from the carbon emissions.

                In case you missed it, last month, @PriceofOil released a new report revealing that just 20 countries, led by the United States, are responsible for 90% of the CO2 pollution from new oil and gas projects planned between 2023-2050. https://priceofoil.org/2023/09/12/planet-wreckers-how-20-countries-oil-and-gas-extraction-plans-risk-locking-in-climate-chaos/

                  The government should have encouraged more innovation rather than depending on this oil

                    This is so ironical despite the promises on transitioning to renewable source through offshore wind firms and solar firms. It is concerning from a climate change perspective. The continued reliance on fossil fuels like oil contributes to the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, exacerbating global warming and its impacts. It is important to remember that renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power have the potential to provide a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Investing in renewable energy not only helps to reduce our carbon footprint but also provides an opportunity for innovation and job creation in the clean energy sector. It's time to shift our focus towards a more sustainable future and reduce our dependence on non-renewable resources
