Oil Output from Major US Shale Plays to Hit Nearly Two-year Low
U.S. crude production from seven major shale formations is expected to fall by a record 197,000 bbl/d in June to 7.822 million bbl/d, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in a monthly report on May 18.
The output from shale formations would be the lowest since August 2018, according to data from the agency.
U.S. crude production from shale formations has more than doubled since 2013, lifting the country's overall oil output to new record highs. Producers have throttled back production since March as prices have crashed due to oversupply and a sharp drop in demand due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
In June, oil output from shale is expected to drop in each of seven major shale regions, with the largest drop of about 87,000 bbl/d in the Permian Basin of Texas and New Mexico. In the Permian, the largest producing shale region, production is expected to fall to about 4.29 million bbl/d.
