EIA: US petroleum exports up for record-setting 13th year

March 23, 2015 By    

In 2014, the United States exported an average of 3.8 million barrels per day (bpd) of non-crude petroleum products – including propane, butane and gasoline, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

For a record-setting 13th consecutive year, U.S. petroleum product exports were up. High global demand and record-setting U.S. refinery runs were among the reasons cited by the EIA.

Propane exports in 2014 rose over the previous year’s figures by 40 percent, or 121,000 bpd, due to increased U.S. production and capacity to export hydrocarbon gas liquids, especially on the U.S. Gulf Coast, the EIA reports.
