This Bureau of Mines publication presents short-range projections of domestic liquid hydrocarbon productions through 1980. Appraisal of future crude oil production was made by evaluating the relationship between primary and enhanced oil recovery and the total crude oil producing trends in each of the oil producing areas of the United States. Future natural gas liquid production was generally estimated by projecting historical production. Estimates of production were prepared for each of the oil producing areas and summarized for the Petroleum Administration for Defense (PAD) districts and total United States. From 1975 to 1980, crude oil production for the conterminous United States is expected to decline from 7.8 to 6.4 million barrels of oil per day (bopd), and it is expected to increase from 8.0 to 8.2 million bopd for the total United States. However, these estimates do not include additional production expected from the Elk Hills Field in California and the yates field in Texas. If included, 1980 production for the conterminous United States would be 6.7 million bopd and 8.4 million bopd for the total United States.
