EIA International Energy Statistics for August and September

The EIA has finally published its International Energy Statistics. The last one had July data. This one is has two months updates, August and September. All the data I publish comes is Crude+Condensate from January 2000 through September 2013.

Again, all data is C+C in thousand barrels per day with the last data point September 2013.


As you can see from the chart World C+C production has leveled out in the last year and one half. September 2013 is slightly lower than February 2012.

There were a couple of major revisions in the July data. Canada was revised down by 269 kb/d while Non-OPEC was revised down by 228 kb/d. There were other small revisions upward. OPEC C+C had no revisions so that left World C+C for July revised down by 228 kb/d.

Both the USA and Canada are on a real tear, owing of course to Light Tight Oil and the Oil Sands. Their combined production is up about 1.9 mb/d since in one year, since last September.

USA + Canada


But they are the only ones on a tear. Almost everyone else is flat to down with a few small producers up slightly.

World Les US & Canada

World less USA and Canada is actually below where it was in June 2004 and is swiftly approaching the bottom it hit after the crash of 2008. The peak was in January 11 and they are down 2.65 mb/d since that point.

Actually only Light Tight Oil is keeping the world from declaring peak.

World Less USA

World less USA is down over 1.5 mb/d since the peak of January 2011.

Non-OPEC is up on the strength of the USA and Canada.


However the EIA has OPEC C+C down considerably.


Charts of all Non-OPEC producers are now up on the Non-OPEC Charts page.

Also a new page has been added, World Crude Oil Production by Geographical Area

      Old Farmer Mac,

      Pikers trying for attention, that’s what they are. Here in the Puget Lowland of western Washington we have five refineries, from Tacoma in the south to Cherry Point just south of the Canadian border, and two of them receive Bakken oil by rail with the remaining three gearing up to do the same.

      Sad to say.

      We’re no one-trick pony though. The four northernmost refineries (I don’t know about Tacoma) also receive Alberta oil-sands oil via the TransMountain pipeline into the Vancouver area–we divert 44% of it before it reaches Canadian facilities. (Don’t tell the Canadians, eh?)

      Oh, and there’s that Alaska stuff, down from Valdez. Don’t see so much of that anymore.

    Chief spy watchdog working for Enbridge since 2011

    Matthew Millar, Vancouver Observer, Posted: Jan 6th, 2014

    Canada’s top spy watchdog and former Conservative cabinet minister Chuck Strahl, who registered last month as a paid lobbyist for Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines L.P., has in fact been contracted with the company since 2011, the Vancouver Observer has found.

    DNR nixes pier repairs for Great Lakes oil terminal in Superior

    Superior-based Elkhorn Industries wants to rehabilitate the harborfront pier to make it usable again for Great Lakes vessels, including a possible terminal for a new Calumet Oil facility to fill tankers and barges with crude oil for shipping to eastern oil refineries. The oil would come into Superior from western states and Canada via pipeline. But the ships could be a low-cost option to keep it moving east because there is more pipeline capacity running into Superior from the west than out to the south and east.


    Tar Sands Crude Shipping Meets Great Lakes? Report cites gaps in region’s oil-spill prevention, response.

    As tar sands extraction continues and proposals for expanded pipelines from Canada into the U.S. form a backdrop, the Great Lakes themselves could become the next frontier for moving crude oil to a vast Midwest refinery network.


    Also of note: In a new report, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has identified potential pollution problems with iron mining in the northern part of the state, including the loss of surface and groundwater and the threats to water from a process known as acid mine drainage.

    This link is bit off topic but it is illustrative of the possibility that technology can come up with some solutions fast enough to take the edge off of the peak oil axe.

    Neil Young blasts oilsands expansion, launches fundraising tour

    4 concerts to fund First Nations legal fight against oilsands projects

    CBC News Posted: Jan 12, 2014 12:49 PM ET

    Singer Neil Young has launched a blistering attack on the Harper government and Alberta’s oil sands.

    Young told a news conference on Sunday as far as the governing Conservatives are concerned, “money is number one, integrity isn’t even on the map.”
    Young, who said he recently visited one of the oil sands sites, compared the pollution to Hiroshima, the Japanese city where the first atomic bomb was dropped during the Second World War.

    Young says Canada’s leaders are killing the people of the First Nations and their blood will be on “modern Canada’s hands.”

      Of course, that ignores the fact that some First Nations are working with industry to advance their societies. They have trained to become welders, equipment operators, managers, lawyers and teachers. These jobs help them to become a nation that can be proud of their heritage.
      Other First nation groups have chosen another road: complain, complain, get drunk, and complain some more.
      It is better to work towards a middle-ground solution, rather than fight and die for a cause that will never happen.
      The oilsands will be developed in a sound economy like Canada. If you want Canada to become like Venezuela, then they may not be developed.

      • aws. says:

        If you want Canada to become like Venezuela, then they may not be developed.

        That line may well be more accurate written this way…

        If you want Canada to become like Venezuela, then they must be developed.

        I suspect in the end all petro-states will look the same.

        Anyway, it’s worth reminding ourselves what “Responsible Resource Development” looks like with respect to protecting First Nations traditional food sources.
