From the late 1970s to 1996, natural gas and crude oil reserves experienced a steady decline (Figure 1). In 1997, the downward trend for natural gas reversed because of innovations in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing techniques that successfully increased natural gas proved reserves and production from shale formations. This is a list of countries by proven oil reserves.Proven reserves are those quantities of petroleum which, by analysis of geological and engineering data, can be estimated, with a high degree of confidence, to be commercially recoverable from a given date forward from known reservoirs and under current economic conditions. The Largest Shale Oil Reserve Is Found In The United States. Worldwide, shale oil is found in many places. But, the largest deposit of them all lies in the United States in the Green River Formation. The Green River Formation covers portions of Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. Oil explorers in the U.S. state of Texas say they’ve discovered the largest deposit of shale oil in a region known as the Permian Basin. The so-called Wolfcamp formation, explorers believe Largest Oil and Gas Reserves Ever Assessed Found in West Texas They called this the largest shale formation of its kind in the Midland-Odessa region that may account for 20 billion barrels of crude oil, 16 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 1.6 billion barrels of natural gas liquids. By year’s end,

The Most Oil Reserves by Country. Given that oil will continue to be dominant in the energy mix for the short and medium term, which countries hold the most oil reserves? Today’s map comes from HowMuch.net and it uses data from the CIA World Factbook to resize countries based on the amount of oil reserves they hold.

By year’s end, The latest report by the EIA into the largest oil and gas fields in the United States shows an unsurprising takeover by some major shale plays in the top ten Oil rig. FILE - In this March 22, 2012 file photo, a pumpjack is silhouetted against the setting sun in Oklahoma City. U.S. oil reserves are now the world's largest, according to results of a The development of shale gas plays has become a "game changer" for the U.S. natural gas market. The proliferation of activity into new shale plays has increased shale gas production in the United States from 0.39 trillion cubic feet in 2000 to 4.87 trillion cubic feet in 2010, or 23 percent of U.S. dry gas production.
