US Daily Crude Oil Exports Hit 4 Million Milestone
U.S. crude stocks fell by their most since June, driven by a surge in U.S. crude exports to more than 4 million barrels per day for the first time in history, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Jan. 3.
Crude inventories fell by 11.5 million barrels in the week ended Dec. 27 to 429.9 million barrels, compared with analyst expectations in a Reuters poll for a 3.3 million-barrel drop.
The sharp fall in stocks was in part due to increased refining output that boosted distillate and gasoline stocks, along with a notable drop in imports, and the rise in exports.
The United States has only been exporting oil since early 2016, after a four-decade ban on crude shipments worldwide was lifted in response to a surge in U.S. oil production.
