BP released its annual Statistical Review of World Energy 2019 today with data for 2018 including annual oil production by country from 1965 to 2018, which allowed me to create the “bar chart race” visualization above for the top ten oil-producers in each of those years. A few observations:
Note the rise of US oil production starting about 2009 from the shale revolution which then brought the US back to the No. 1 spot by 2015 as the world’s leading oil producer again — with a commanding lead last year over Saudi Arabia’s oil production (by 24%) and Russia (by 34%).
