U.S. OIL PRODUCTION 11.9 MBD
U.S. EIA - U.S. crude oil production rose to a new high of 11.9 million barrels per day in November, up 345,000 bpd from the previous month.
The increase came as output in Texas rose 115,000 bpd and Gulf of Mexico offshore production rose by 188,000 bpd, outstripping a slight decline in North Dakota, where production fell by 11,000 bpd.
U.S. crude production was up 17.8 percent from a year earlier.
U.S. total oil demand in November was up 3 percent, or 615,000 bpd, versus last year, buoyed by strong demand for gasoline and diesel.
U.S. gasoline demand was up 1.1 percent, or 100,000 bpd, versus last year.
Gasoline demand was down 0.8 percent in October. Gasoline demand is closely watched by traders because the U.S. accounts for roughly 10 percent of global gasoline demand.
U.S. distillate demand was up 2.3 percent, or 96,000 bpd, in November.
In October, distillate demand rose by 10.4 percent year-over-year.
Meanwhile, gross natural gas production in the lower 48 U.S. states rose to an all-time high of 97.7 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) in November, up from the prior record of 96.8 bcfd in October.
In Texas, the nation's largest gas producer, output increased to a record high of 25.3 bcfd in November, up 0.2 percent from October. That compares with output of 22.7 bcfd in November 2017.
In Pennsylvania, the second biggest gas producing state, production rose to a record 18.2 bcfd in November, up 1.7 percent from October. That compares with output of 15.8 bcfd in November 2017.

U.S. EIA - In December 2018, U.S. shale and tight plays produced about 65 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas (70% of total U.S. dry gas production) and about 7 million barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil (60% of total U.S. oil production). A decade ago, in December 2008, shale gas and tight oil accounted for 16% of total U.S. gas production and about 12% of U.S. total crude oil production.
