The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) on March 12 raised its forecast for U.S. domestic oil growth in 2024 by 90,000 bbl, but lowered its forecast for global oil production growth due to production cuts from OPEC+.

U.S. crude oil production will rise by 260,000 bbl/d to 13.19 MMbbl/d this year, the EIA said in its Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO). It had previously projected that crude production would rise this year by 170,000 bbl/d.

Production notched an annual record of 13.21 MMbbl/d in 2023.

U.S. crude oil production is expected to rise by 460,000 bbl/d to 13.65 MMbbl/d in 2025, EIA said.

U.S. total petroleum consumption will rise by 200,000 bbl/d to 20.4 MMbbl/d in 2024, in line with previous forecasts, but will rise to 20.6 MMbbl/d in 2025, a 100,000 bbl/d rise from the EIA's previous forecast.
