Crude oil production, including lease condensate, in the United States rose in September to 10.860 million barrels per day on average, according to the Energy Information Administration’s monthly report released on Monday. September’s oil production was up 286,000 barrels per day on average compared to the month prior, but still down significantly—1.635 million bpd—from September 2019.
The increase in September over August was mostly due to offshore oil production off the Gulf of Mexico, which saw a 315,000 bpd increase to 1.510 million bpd. This compares to 1.917 million bpd in September 2019.
North Dakota’s oil production also increased in September to 1.215 million bpd, for an increase of 61,000 bpd.
Meanwhile, Texas—which accounts for the largest portion of oil production by far – saw declines in its September crude oil production, to 4.628 million bpd from 4.688 million bpd. Texas’ oil production is 563,000 bpd lower than the same month last year.
