Update: October 18, 2019
EIA has identified an issue with the factors we used to convert data measured by energy content (British thermal units) to volumetric measurements (barrels) in the International Energy Outlook 2019 oil supply tables. As a result, we have removed the relevant tables and analysis, and we are investigating the issue. Once we resolve the issue and correct any errors, we will republish the updated content. Please contact the International Energy Outlook team (InternationalEnergyOutlook@eia.gov) with any questions.
