Talk:Chart of exports and production of oil by nation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


This data is from 2006.


When were the stats on this page generated? It's pretty well meaningless w/o a date. Also note that the graph is based on the data from this article, circa Aug 6th, prior to the last fix of Norweigian data. MrZaiustalk 14:51, 11 September 2006 (UTC)


List of Oil Trading Nations & List of oil-producing states are very different beasts, and should not be merged together. However, their names are so similar as to cause confusion. Unless someone objects, I'll move this page to Chart of exports and production of oil by nation in ~6 hours. MrZaiustalk 15:16, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Weblink to updated data[edit]

I wanted to add a weblink to updated data ( ) but the link was automatically deleted. Maybe the "" domain is blocked. I hope this can be levied, as this information (graphs and excel spreadsheets) is quite helpful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Drylexx (talkcontribs) 21:08, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

It's a blog. It is not a reliable source. Geologyguy (talk) 21:11, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Updated and Added[edit]

I just added some more oil-exporting nations, and updated some figures. All of the data that I added came from the EIA link given on the page. The data is from 2005.

Added Denmark, and moved and updated Indonesia. Its status as an "Oil Trading Nation" is probably questionable now: it is now a very minor oil importer, but I would think it still has a place on this page, as a matter of interest, since it is still a member of OPEC.

Why are there no Russia in the oil producer's list. I think russia is one of big oil producer Nielswik 22:35, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Russia and Norway were absent due to apparent vandalism from Wooerfara3661, which I have now reverted. Ordinary Person 03:44, 16 October 2006 (UTC)


The table says that Norway produces 3.1 and exports 2.8 - Incidentally, what are the units?
The chart has the red bar for Norway smaller than the blue, contrary to the table.
I'm guessing that the chart is wrong. Does anybody have any input regarding this? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 02:52, 7 December 2006 (UTC).

I think the graph is wrong, it states that Norway produces 2,8 and exports 3,1. --ArneHD 13:34, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Changes to be consistent[edit]

In order to allow this to be a consistent list of some sort, I have added China, Australia, and Ecuador. It is now a list of all nations that are net exporters of oil OR produce more than half a million barrels per day, sorted by net export/import amount.

Why is Ukraine completely missing on this page? According to my sources, Ukraine produced in 2006 4.5mtpa. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:30, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

The EIA says Ukraine produces about 93,000 barrels per day (0.09 million barrels per day), ranking it at #46 and below all the nations on this list of leading oil producers. Cheers Geologyguy (talk) 01:14, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

World production + history[edit]

We should add world production and data for different years. That would be useful as ****. I'll try to do that when I've got time. A good source could be [1].Kromsson (talk) 19:12, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

I added world production.Kromsson (talk) 13:24, 1 January 2008 (UTC)


China is listed on the page, but seems to be missing from both charts. How come? D64 (talk) 20:51, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Oil production[edit]

Shouldn't we have an article on this rather than a redirect here? Richard001 (talk) 07:02, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

There are lots of articles that discuss this: petroleum, oil rig, non-conventional oil, etc. etc. I think a portal would be more helpful. NJGW (talk) 19:30, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Data source[edit]

I recommend Oil & Gas journal be used for crude production statistics because they seem to update it frequently. Constan69 (talk) 08:19, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

Support. No need to have two similar lists.Beagel (talk) 21:12, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Support, as long as any useful info from here actually makes it into the other list (I'm assuming that the other title will be used as it's actually a list and not a chart we're talking about). NJGW (talk) 19:27, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Seen as there are no objections after a number of months and this chart is severely out of date, i'm gonna go ahead and redirect. --neon white talk 18:21, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

raw export data[edit]

It would be useful to see the raw export data for a nation, not just net export. Example, while the USA has a negative net export of oil, it still export a quantity of it's domestic oil supply. That information would help clarify claims of domestic production and need to import.
