US Crude Production in September Rose to Monthly Record - EIA
12.04.2023 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

December 4, 2023 [Reuters]- U.S. crude production in September rose to a new monthly record of 13.24 million barrels per day, helped by a large increase in North Dakota, home to the Bakken shale, Energy Information Administration data showed on Thursday.


Crude output rose by 1.7%, the largest increase since March, the data showed. In North Dakota, the third top oil-producing U.S. state, crude production rose by 6.5% to 1.3 million bpd in September, the highest since March 2020.

Crude output in the Bakken shale has ramped up more than expected this year, said Francisco Blanch, Head of Global Commodities & Derivatives Research for BofA.

“I’ve been surprised by areas such as the Bakken coming back so strong,” Blanch said in a call to discuss the bank’s energy outlook. “The growth has not just been a Permian story. We’re seeing many shale basins that were flattish experiencing a revival.”

In Texas, crude production fell by 0.1% to 5.57 million bpd, the lowest since July and the first time production in the state has fallen since April, the EIA said. Output in New Mexico rose by 1.1% to 1.82 million bpd, the highest since April.

Gross natural gas production in the U.S. Lower 48 states eased about 0.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) to 116.3 bcfd in September from a record 116.4 bcfd in August, according to EIA’s monthly 914 production report.

That was the first monthly decline since June.

In top gas-producing states, monthly output in September rose 1.0% in Texas to a new record of 34.8 bcfd, but fell 1.7% in Pennsylvania to 20.6 bcfd.

That topped the prior all-time high of 34.4 bcfd in Texas in August and compares with a record 21.9 bcfd in Pennsylvania in December 2021.

U.S. product supplied – a proxy of demand – of crude and petroleum products fell in September to 20.09 million bpd, the lowest since April, a separate report from the EIA showed on Thursday. Product supplied dropped by 789,000 bpd, the biggest fall since December.

Product supplied of finished motor gasoline fell to 8.83 million bpd, the lowest since February, the data showed.
