  • U.S. hydropower generation expected to increase by 6% in 2024 following last year's lows
    on April 18, 2024 at 12:00 pm

    Last year, U.S. hydropower electricity generation fell to its lowest since 2001. This year, we expect hydropower to increase 6% and account for 250 billion kilowatthours of electricity generation in the power sector, based on forecasts in our Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO). We expect hydropower to increase in nearly every part of the country, with notable increases in the Southeast and in the Northwest and Rockies. We expect other regions with significant hydropower generation to either increase slightly, such as in New York, or remain about the same, such as California.

  • U.S. natural gas trade will continue to grow with the startup of new LNG export projects
    on April 17, 2024 at 12:00 pm

    In our recently released Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), we forecast that U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports will continue to lead growth in U.S. natural gas trade as three LNG export projects currently under construction start operations and ramp up to full production by the end of 2025. We also forecast increased natural gas exports by pipeline, mainly to Mexico. In our STEO forecast, net exports of U.S. natural gas (exports minus imports) grow 6% from 2023 in 2024 to 13.6 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). In 2025, net exports increase another 20% to 16.4 Bcf/d.

  • China imported record amounts of crude oil in 2023

    China, the world's largest importer of crude oil, imported 11.3 million barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil in 2023, 10% more than in 2022, according to China customs data. Refiners in China imported record volumes of crude oil in 2023 to supply the country's increasing refining capacity in order to support the country's transportation fuel needs and produce feedstocks for its growing petrochemical industry.

  • The United States exported a record volume of natural gas in 2023
    on April 15, 2024 at 12:00 pm

    The United States exported 10% more natural gas in 2023 than in 2022, a record of 20.9 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), according to our Natural Gas Monthly. U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports accounted for more than half of all U.S. natural gas exports, and natural gas exports by pipeline to Canada and Mexico accounted for the remainder.

  • Natural gas filled in most of the drop in solar generation in Texas during April 8 eclipse
    on April 12, 2024 at 5:00 am

    On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse briefly but fully obscured sunlight to utility-scale solar electric generation facilities along the eclipse's path, from Texas through Maine. Texas was especially affected because of how much solar capacity was in the path of totality. Industry Headlines The latest oil and gas news from around the world.
