U.S. Crude Oil Exports: Record High in 1st Half of 2023

According to U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. crude oil exports in the first half of 2023 averaged 3.99 million barrels per day (b/d).

This is a record high for the first half of a year since 2015, when the U.S. ban on most crude oil exports from the United States was repealed. In the first half of 2023, crude oil exports were up 650,000 b/d (19%) compared with the first half of 2022.

The global demand for crude oil is increasing (not decreasing)

The U.S crude oil exports increased from about 500,000 b/d in 2015 to almost 4M b/d in 2023.

U.S. still imports more crude oil than it exports

Despite record exports, the United States remained a net crude oil importer in the first half of the year, according to EIA data, even with increasing domestic production, importing 8.836 million bpd in June—nearly half of which came from Canada.

Why does the United States continue to import crude oil?

Refineries in the United States are geared to process heavy, sour crude oil, while most of the oil produced in the United States is light, sweet crude.

U.S is the biggest produce of crude oil in the world

According to EIA, U.S. crude oil production is now at 12.9 million barrels per day, compared to 12 million bpd this same time last year. It is on par, however, with production levels at the end of 2019 and under the all-time weekly high of 13.1 million bpd that the U.S. saw in March 2020

Current U.S. oil production is near all time weekly high of 13.1M b/d in March 2020
