Does the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) have county-level energy production data?

EIA publishes county-level energy production data only for:

  • Coal: Annual data are in Table 2: Production and number of mines by state, county, and mine type in the Annual Coal Report.
  • Electricity generation: Monthly and annual data by fuel/energy source at individual power plants are in the EIA-923 database files. The state and county location for the power plants are in the PlantYyy file of the EIA-860 database.
  • Oil and natural gas: For selected regions, data are in the Drilling Productivity Report . The counties that are included in each region are in the Region Counties worksheet of the report data file.

The location of coal mines and power plants are available in the U.S. Energy Mapping System.
