Drilling Productivity Report

Jan 19, 2021
Falling crude oil demand and prices, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, caused May 2020 oil production in North Dakota to decline by more than 40% from the peak month of October 2019. The January supplement to the Drilling Productivity Report explains how the base production (production from wells more than one year old) has returned to pre-pandemic levels and the swing production (production from wells less than a year old) has not because a lower rate of new well completions has resulted in fewer new wells.

OPEC Revenues Fact Sheet

Jan 14, 2021
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) will earn about $323 billion in net oil export revenues in 2020. If realized, this forecast revenue would be the lowest in 18 years. Lower crude oil prices and lower export volumes drive this expected decrease in export revenues.

Short-Term Energy Outlook

Jan 12, 2021
The January STEO remains subject to heightened levels of uncertainty because responses to COVID-19 continue to evolve. Reduced economic activity and changes to consumer behavior in response to the COVID-19 pandemic caused energy demand and supply to decline in 2020. The ongoing pandemic and the success of vaccination programs will continue to affect energy use in the future.

Proved Reserves of Crude Oil and Natural Gas in the United States, Year-End 2019

Jan 11, 2021
According to its Proved Reserves of Crude Oil and Natural Gas in the United States, Year-End 2019 report, EIA states that in 2019 proved reserves of natural gas in the United States declined 2%—the first time natural gas reserves have declined since 2015—and proved reserves of oil increased by a slight amount (0.1%) from the 2018 level. Proved reserves of oil and natural gas had risen annually in the United States by at least 9% in the previous two years.

Third-quarter 2020 U.S. coal exports (15.3 MMst) increased 3.2% from the second-quarter 2020 level and decreased 30.5% from the third-quarter 2019 level. U.S. coal imports in the third quarter of 2020 totaled 1.3 MMst. All data for 2019 and previous years are final. All data for 2020 are preliminary.

Natural Gas Monthly

Dec 31, 2020
In October 2020, for the sixth consecutive month, dry natural gas production decreased year over year for the month. The preliminary level for dry natural gas production in October 2020 was 2,758 billion cubic feet (Bcf), or 89.0 Bcf/d. This level was 7.1 Bcf/d (-7.4%) lower than the October 2019 level of 96.0 Bcf/d. Despite this year-over-year decrease, the average daily rate of dry production was the second highest for the month since the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) began tracking monthly dry production in 1973.

Annual Energy Outlook Retrospective Review

Dec 29, 2020
The Annual Energy Outlook Retrospective Review compares realized energy outcomes with the Reference case projections included in previous editions of the Annual Energy Outlook (AEO) beginning with 1994. This edition of the report adds the AEO 2020 projections and updates the historical data to incorporate the latest data revisions.

International Energy Portal updates

Dec 23, 2020
The International Energy Portal now includes complete annual datasets through 2018, and many annual datasets are available for 2019 as well. In addition, EIA has begun releasing annual data when available, rather than at the end of each year. You can also now access monthly updates for petroleum and other liquids production for all countries and for energy consumption for countries within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

This year, we prioritized redesigning the original International Portal to improve usability. In response to customer feedback, the new International Energy Portal includes several new features to meet customer needs. For example, not only can you view data in physical units and British thermal units of energy content, but you can also view data in units such as Terajoules (TJ) and million tons of oil equivalent (MTOE). All of the previous features (such as world energy overviews, rankings, and country analysis) are also available.

Monthly Energy Review

Dec 23, 2020
The Monthly Energy Review is EIA's comprehensive report on recent and historical energy statistics. Preliminary estimates indicate that U.S. transportation sector energy consumption fell from 2.3 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) in September 2019 to 2.1 quadrillion Btu in September 2020, a 10% decrease.

U.S. Oil and Natural Gas Wells by Production Rate

Dec 23, 2020
The share of horizontal wells during the past decade increased from 4% to 16% (2009–19). As a result, most U.S. oil and natural gas production comes from wells producing more than 100 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/d). Meanwhile, the share of U.S. oil and natural gas wells producing less than 15 BOE/d has remained steady at 80% from 2000 through 2019.

EIA forecasts less power generation from natural gas as a result of rising fuel costs

annual U.S. electric power sector generation by energy source
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO)

In its latest Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), released on January 12, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts that generation from natural gas-fired power plants in the U.S. electric power sector will decline by about 8% in 2021. This decline would be the first annual decline in natural gas-fired generation since 2017. Forecast generation from coal-fired power plants will increase by 14% in 2021, after declining by 20% in 2020. EIA forecasts that generation from nonhydropower renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, will grow by 18% in 2021—the fastest annual growth rate since 2010.
