Click to view 2014
In 2007, the start of America’s shale oil production revolution, U.S. oil production was only about 5 million barrels per day. Since then U.S. oil production has increased almost 70%. Most of this increase is due to shale oil production, which has risen from less than half a million barrels per day in 2007 to almost 4 million barrels per day in 2014, constituting 46% of U.S. oil production in 2014.
