Oil Production

Oil Production

The table below shows oil production for the 2012 calendar year. From the end of 2011 to the end of 2012, the U.S. had the greatest increase in its production (14%), followed by Iraq (11%), and Kuwait (9%). The U.S. pumps about one out of every 10 barrels of oil worldwide. According to WSJ (June 2013), the “techniques that have unleashed so much crude in the U.S. haven’t yet had an impact overseas.” In 2012, world consumption grew by 0.9%; Europe and North America used less oil, while the rest of the world, led by China, used more.
