US crude oil production during November 2015 totaled 9.32 million b/d, a decline of less than a percent from the October total but still up 1.3% compared with the November 2014 total, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration mostly based on findings from its EIA-914 survey.
The Federal Offshore Gulf of Mexico dropped 3.5% during the month to 1.55 million b/d, which was still 11.6% higher year-over-year.
