Note: Proved reserves are measured as of December 31.

U.S. proved crude oil reserve additions in 2011 set a record volumetric increase for the second year in a row, according to newly published estimates in EIA's U.S. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Proved Reserves, 2011. Natural gas proved reserve additions fell short of setting a record, but still ranked as the second largest annual increase since 1977. Crude oil reserves rose 15% (almost 3.8 billion barrels) to the highest level since 1985, and natural gas reserves were up almost 10% (31.2 trillion cubic feet).
