Nation produced a record level of energy in 2018, EIA says

Daily Energy Insider reports: The United States produced a record amount of energy in 2018, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). The nation produced 96 quadrillion British thermal units (quads) of energy from various sources in 2018, an 8 percent increase from 2017. The increase in production outpaced the 4 percent increase in U.S. energy consumption, which also reached a record high of 101 quads. Further, U.S. energy exports increased 18 percent to 21 quads in 2018 – also a record. Consequently, net energy imports into the United States dropped to a 54-year low of 4 quads. The EIA report found that crude oil and natural gas accounted for 57 percent of all U.S. energy production in 2018. Crude oil production saw an increase of 17 percent while natural gas had a rise of 12 percent from 2017. Also, natural gas plant liquids production increased by 14 percent. Additionally, the production of renewable energy increased 4 percent from 2017.
