EIA: US Shale Output To Rise To Record 7.18 MMbbl/d In June

U.S. shale production is expected to rise by about 145,000 barrels per day (bbl/d) to a record 7.18 million barrels per day (MMbbl/d) in June, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said on May 14.

A majority of the increase is expected to come from the Permian basin, the biggest U.S. oil patch, where output is expected to climb 78,000 bbl/d to a fresh record of 3.28 MMbbl/d, the EIA said in its monthly drilling productivity report.
