W = Withheld to avoid disclosure of individual company data.

Notes:
Starting in January 2013, there may be a shift in the continuity of Chapter 4 Tables, due to changes in the sample design of Form EIA-923 and the imputation process.
See the Instrument Design History section of the Form EIA-923 Technical Notes for a more detailed explanation of these changes.
See Glossary for definitions.
Values are final.
See Technical Notes for a discussion of the sample design for the Form EIA-923 and predecessor forms.
Totals may not equal sum of components because of independent rounding.
Petroleum Coke includes petroleum coke-derived synthesis gas. Prior to 2011, petroleum coke-derived synthesis gas was included in Other Gases.
See the Technical Notes for fuel conversion factors.
