U.S. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Production in Federal and Non-Federal Areas

Friday, April 18th, 2014
Figure 1: U.S. Crude Oil Production: Federal and Non-Federal Areas, FY2009-2013

CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE
A key question in this discussion is how much oil and gas is produced in the United States each year and how much of that comes from federal versus non-federal areas. Oil production has fluctuated on federal lands over the past five fiscal years but has increased dramatically on nonfederal lands. Non-federal crude oil production has been rapidly increasing in the past few years partly due to favorable geology and the relative ease of leasing from private parties, rising by 2.1 million barrels per day (mbd) between FY2009-FY2013, causing the federal share of total U.S. crude oil production to fall by nearly 11%.

The Electric Slide: Where America’s Energy Goes

The Electric Slide (Infographic) | Where Americas Energy Goes

AMERICAN TRAINCO
Although we might consider electricity a primary source of energy in our lives since we use it for a variety of household items, electricity is actually a secondary source. Electricity is generated from primary energy sources like coal, natural gas, petroleum, and renewable energy sources like wood, biofuels, wind, and hydropower.

Oil & Natural Gas Transportation & Storage Infrastructure: Status, Trends, & Economic Benefits

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014
Base Case Direct Capital Investments  Cumulative

AMERICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE
Over the past five years, unconventional oil and gas activity has thrust the nation into an unexpected position. The U.S. is now the global growth leader in crude oil production capacity growth, adding nearly 1.2 million barrels per day (mbd) of capacity over the 2008 – 2012 time period. In addition, the U.S. is now the largest natural gas producer, at 65 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per day. At the same time, unconventional activity is spurring the growth of natural gas liquids (NGLs) production, adding over 500,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day since 2008. This has brought the total increase in liquids production capacity to some 1.7 mbd since 2008.

Natural Gas and Renewables in Texas

Table I-1: Overview of Modeled ERCOT Scenarios

THE TEXAS CLEAN ENERGY COALITION
In the electrically-independent power system of Texas known as ERCOT, the evolution of the power sector is especially related to the development path for renewable energy and natural gas-fired power. With over 12,000 MW of installed capacity, Texas is the largest state producer of wind-powered electricity in the U.S. Wind resources in Texas are more than double the next two largest wind capacity states combined. At the same time, Texas is the leading U.S. producer of natural gas, and the state generates nearly half its electricity from natural gas plants, substantially more than it generates from coal or nuclear power. Texas also has abundant, high-quality wind resources and solar energy potential.

FIGURE 5 OUTLOOK ON INDUSTRY GROWTH IN NORTH AMERICA

BLACK & VEATCH
The North American natural gas industry continues to hold substantial promise as an engine for sustained economic growth. However, realizing the full potential of the vast resources available will require tremendous compromise among the various stakeholders who produce, transport, distribute, trade and regulate domestic natural gas.

Shale Gas 201: Further Exploration of a Domestic Resource

A continuation of the conversation started in “Natural Gas 101″ from the first season of Rational Middle Energy videos, “Natural Gas 201″ discusses the ways natural gas can contribute to the recovery of the economy from the Great Recession, as well as taking a look at the relationship between renewables and gas now and in the future.

Mapping Urban Pipeline Leaks: Methane Leaks Across Boston

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

BOSTON UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF EARTH AND ENVIRONMENT
Natural gas is the largest source of anthropogenic emissions of methane (CH4) in the United States. To assess pipeline emissions across a major city, we mapped CH4 leaks across all 785 road miles in the city of Boston using a cavity-ring-down mobile CH4 analyzer.

America’s New Energy Future: The Unconventional Oil and Gas Revolution and the US Economy

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

IHS
An unconventional oil and natural gas revolution is transforming America’s energy economy, with far-reaching impacts on the US economy. It has already created over 1.7 million jobs and, by the end of the decade, will have contributed a total of nearly 3 million jobs. Against a backdrop of a historically slow economic recovery and persistently high unemployment following the Great Recession, the surge in spending associated with unconventional oil and natural gas activity is proving to be an important engine for jobs creation.
