U.S. ENERGY CONSUMPTION UP
U.S. EIA - March 2019 Monthly Energy Review
· U.S. primary energy consumption totaled 101 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu). This total was the highest since at least 1949, the earliest year for which EIA has data. Compared with 2017, natural gas consumption increased 10%, renewable energy consumption increased 3%, petroleum consumption increased 2%, nuclear electric power consumption was virtually unchanged, and coal consumption decreased 4%.

U.S set a new record for oil production at 12.1 million barrels a day (mb/d) in February, continuing America’s position as the world’s leading oil producer.
Electricity generation from U.S. nuclear power plants totaled 807.1 million megawatthours (MWh) in 2018, slightly more than the previous peak of 807.0 million MWh in 2010, based on preliminary annual data. Although several nuclear power plants have closed since 2010, a combination of added capacity through uprates and shorter refueling and maintenance cycles allowed the remaining nuclear power plants to produce more electricity. In the near future, however, EIA expects that U.S. nuclear power output will decline.
IEA - The United States will drive global oil supply growth over the next five years thanks to the remarkable strength of its shale industry, triggering a rapid transformation of world oil markets
EIA - Renewable generation provided a new record of 742 million megawatthours (MWh) of electricity in 2018, nearly double the 382 million MWh produced in 2008. Renewables provided 17.6% of electricity generation in the United States in 2018.
U.S. natural gas production grew by 10.0 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2018, an 11% increase from 2017. The growth was the largest annual increase in production on record, reaching a record high for the second consecutive year
The U.S. Energy Information Administration is expecting domestic coal-fired power generation this year to reach its lowest level in over 70 years.

U.S. EIA - Crude oil production from the major US onshore regions is forecast to increase 80,000 b/d month-over-month in April from 8,380 to 8,460 thousand barrels/day , gas production to increase 907 million cubic feet/day from 78,930 to 79,837 million cubic feet/day .
The rules governing the EU's internal gas market will in future also apply to pipelines to and from third countries. The Council today formally adopted an amendment to the so-called gas directive which aims at closing a legal gap in the EU's regulatory framework and boosting competition in the gas market. This is the final step in the legislative process.
Russian energy major Gazprom Neft expects the Arctic to account for more than half its oil and gas production by 2020,
