State of American energy report 2015

The American Petroleum Institute broadened its fifth annual State of American Energy report as it included solar, nuclear, hydropower, wind, coal, geothermal, biomass, and energy efficiency as well as oil and gas. The US is the world’s leading natural gas producer and petroleum refiner, and is expected to become its top crude oil producer as early as this year. America’s emergence as a global energy leader has fundamentally reordered the world’s energy markets by elevating the importance of North American energy production and reducing what had been the dominant roles of [the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries] and Russia.
