Total net energy imports to the United States fell to 7.3 quadrillion British thermal units (quads) in 2017, a 35% decrease from 2016 and the lowest level since 1982, when both gross imports and gross exports were much lower.
June 22, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, In recent years, higher domestic production of light, tight crude oil has regions. One of the key characteristics of crude oil is its density, measured by . Less-dense liquids have higher API gravities. Crude oils with API gravities of 35 or above are considered light; 27 to […]
May 21, 2015 Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, based on U.S. Department of Energy Office of Fossil Energy U.S. net imports of natural gas decreased 9% in 2014, continuing an eight-year decline. As U.S. dry natural gas production has reached record highs, lower domestic prices have helped to displace natural gas imports. Net natural gas […]

In its recently released (AEO2015) Reference case, EIA expects U.S. crude oil production to rise through 2020 as oil prices recover from their steep decline, reducing net petroleum (crude oil and petroleum products) imports. AEO 2015 explores […]

The strongest drivers of the resurgence in U.S. biomass-based diesel demand since 2012 have been increasing RFS targets and the on-again, off-again biodiesel tax credit. Biodiesel and […]
