The United States remained the world’s top producer of petroleum and natural gas hydrocarbons in 2014, according to EIA estimates. U.S. hydrocarbon production continues to exceed that of both Russia and Saudi Arabia, the second- and third-largest producers, respectively. For the United States and Russia, total petroleum and natural gas hydrocarbon production, in energy content terms, is almost evenly split between petroleum and natural gas. Saudi Arabia’s production heavily favors petroleum.
