U.S. becoming a crude oil and petroleum products net exporter mp3
Date: January 15, 2019
Description: In November 2018, the United States briefly exported more crude oil and petroleum products than it imported, according to recent estimates by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. EIA estimates that U.S. crude oil and petroleum product net imports decreased from an average of 3.7 million barrels per day in all of 2017 to 2.4 million in 2018. The forecast expects that trend to continue through 2020. In its January Short-Term Energy Outlook, EIA forecasts net crude oil and petroleum product imports to decrease to an average of 1.2 million barrels per day in 2019 and decline further in 2020. According to the outlook, the United States will export more crude oil and petroleum products than it imports in the fourth quarter of 2020. By that time, the forecast expects the United States to average 900,000 barrel per day in net exports.

New records for U.S. natural gas exports mp3
Date: January 15, 2019
Description: The U.S. Energy Information Administration is reporting that the United States exported more natural gas than it imported again in 2018. EIA estimates that net U.S. natural gas exports averaged 2.2 billion cubic feet per day for the year. In its January Short-Term Energy Outlook, EIA forecasts gross U.S. natural gas exports to increase by a record 34% in 2019 and reach an average of 13.6 billion cubic feet per day. The forecast expects an additional increase of nearly 14% in 2020, which estimates the average for gross exports to reach 15.5 billion cubic feet per day. EIA attributes these historic increases to record levels of natural gas production, new infrastructure, and significant increases in liquefied natural gas exports. EIA is forecasting LNG exports to more than double from 2018 to 2020, increasing from an estimated 2.9 billion cubic feet per day to 6.8 billion cubic feet per day.

Crude oil production from non-OPEC countries surges mp3
Date: January 15, 2019
Description: In December 2018, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, and some participating non-OPEC countries, announced crude oil production cuts. The U.S. Energy Information Administration forecasts non-OPEC crude oil production in 2019 and 2020 will offset OPEC's reduced production. In its January Short-Term Energy Outlook, EIA reports that U.S. crude oil production in 2018 averaged a record 10.9 million barrels per day. The forecast expects U.S. production to increase above 12 million barrels per day in 2019 and fall just shy of 13 million barrels per day in 2020. EIA attributes surging U.S. crude oil production to growth in the Permian region of Texas and New Mexico. Growing production from Brazil will also contribute to modest supply growth over the next 24 months.

EIA forecasts renewables will be fastest growing source of electricity generation

U.S. electricity generation by energy source
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Short-Term Energy Outlook, January 2019
Note: Confidence interval derived from NYMEX options market information.

EIA expects non-hydroelectric renewable energy resources such as solar and wind will be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years. EIA’s January 2019 Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) forecasts that electricity generation from utility-scale solar generating units will grow by 10% in 2019 and by 17% in 2020. According to the January STEO, wind generation will grow by 12% and 14% during the next two years. EIA forecasts total U.S. electricity generation across all fuels will fall by 2% this year and then show very little growth in 2020.
