DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2013) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- U.S. domestic production of crude oil is expected to exceed imports sometime this year as surging production from domestic shale formations continues to displace imported crude, speakers said at an Oil & Gas conference earlier this month in Denver. This trend began in 2008, when U.S. crude oil production bottomed at about 5 million barrels per day (BBL/d). It increased to about 6.5 million BBL/d in 2012, and is projected to reach between 9 million and 11 million BBL/d in 2020, speakers told about 250 attendees at the 7th Annual Platts Rockies Oil & Gas Conference. Domestic production is expected to exceed imports sometime this year, speakers said.
