For example, August marked the first time that monthly U.S. crude oil production levels surpassed 11 million barrels per day (bbl/d), according to a report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
In August, crude oil production in the U.S. reached 11.2 million bbl/d, outpacing July production of 10.9 million bbl/d. During the month, several Midcontinent states reached record levels of oil production as well—Texas hit a record 4.6 million bbl/d and record highs were also reached in New Mexico and Oklahoma.
