By 2017, America will produce 10.9 million barrels a day, and it - 397 billion barrels per year. With the current price of $ 100 per barrel, major oil companies joined in the fight for American black gold.

America prepares for a new oil boom.

Oil production is traditionally accepted in the United States regarded as a dying industry. After 1970, when America was extracted 3.5 million barrels per day, production is constantly decreasing. Least of all oil has been produced in 2008 - 1.81 million barrels.

After that, despite the fact that it was not mentioned in the press, the production level is constantly rising. In 2009 it produced 1.95 million barrels in 2010 - 1.99 million. But recently there was a sharp, at times, a jump in production - in 2011 production reached 7.5 million barrels per day (7.8 million according to the CIA). In this figure includes oil shale and “other liquids”, and America in terms of production now ranks third in the world (after Russia - 10.54 million barrels, and Saudi Arabia - 8.8 million barrels).

The company Goldman Sachs in September, said that by 2017 oil production in the U.S. will surpass the volume of production in Saudi Arabia.

The reason is the discovery of huge deposits of oil shale - from Canada south through the North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado and Texas and east to Ohio and Pennsylvania.

In November, Anadarko announced that the observed field “Niobraro” in Colorado. Assessment of reserves exceeds one billion barrels. The company’s shares immediately rose 30%.
