According to Macquarie, US Oil Production Is Expected To Break Records

According to analysts at Macquarie Group Ltd., US oil production is poised to achieve a historic milestone, potentially reaching around 14 million barrels per day by year’s end.

This surge in production persists despite restrained growth strategies among publicly listed companies and ongoing industry consolidation, factors previously viewed as potential impediments to expansion.

Macquarie, renowned for its precise forecasts regarding increased US shale production in the past year, foresees US production climbing to approximately 14.5 million barrels per day by the close of 2025, notwithstanding projections of markedly reduced crude prices.

Trends and Projections in the Energy Sector

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) has updated its forecasts, revising its outlook for US crude oil production to rise to 13.19 million barrels per day this year, up from a prior estimate of 13.1 million.

EIA forecasts global oil supply shortfall this year, flipping to surplus next year amid shifting dynamics.

This adjustment reflects an accelerated growth trajectory, expected to persist into the following year as production climbs to 13.65 million barrels, representing a 1.2% increase from earlier forecasts. These revisions hold significance as the market evaluates the effects of output constraints imposed by OPEC and its allies on global supplies and pricing dynamics.

Global Oil Market Dynamics

Even with increased production from the US and other nations such as Guyana, Brazil, and Canada, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) anticipates that global oil supply will lag behind demand by 260,000 barrels per day this year.

The market watches OPEC’s production cuts and the alliance’s impact on the global oil balance, influencing future prices.

However, this shortfall is projected to flip into a surplus of 360,000 barrels per day in the following year. These forecasts are closely scrutinized for insights into how OPEC’s production cuts, in collaboration with its allies, will impact the equilibrium between global oil supply and demand, potentially influencing market prices.
