While North American oil and gas production is expected to skyrocket in the coming years, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cut its world oil demand growth forecast last week due to economic weakness in Europe and the United States -- taking the opposite view to the U.S. government's energy forecaster and reflecting growing uncertainty over the outlook, Reuters reports.

OPEC, the source of more than a third of the world's oil, said global demand would rise in 2012 by 940,000 bpd, which is 120,000 bpd less than expected last month.

Improvements in drilling techniques have transformed the U.S. energy landscape in recent years by unlocking the country's immense shale oil and gas reserves, Reuters reports. Last month the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said that the nation's boom in shale oil production will raise U.S. domestic crude output by a fifth over the next decade, helping to slash the country's dependence on foreign oil imports.

In his State of the Union speech last month, President Obama echoed these views, and assured the American people that he was in support of domestic energy production.
