Texas Quick Facts
Texas is the leading crude oil-producing State in the Nation (excluding Federal offshore areas, which produce more than any single State).
The State’s signature type of crude oil, known as West Texas Intermediate (WTI), remains the major benchmark of crude oil in the Americas.
Texas’s 27 petroleum refineries can process more than 4.7 million barrels of crude oil per day, and they account for more than one-fourth of total U.S. refining capacity.
Approximately three-tenths of total U.S. natural gas production occurs in Texas, making it the Nation’s leading natural gas producer.
Texas also leads the Nation in wind-powered generation capacity; there are over 2,000 wind turbines in West Texas alone.
Texas produces and consumes more electricity than any other State, and per capita residential use is significantly higher than the national average.
