Crude oil and natural gas production as reported to the Railroad Commission of Texas for February 2021 came from 167,804 oil wells and 84,748 gas wells.
The RRC reports that from March 2020 to February 2021, total Texas reported production was 1.3 billion barrels of crude oil and 10.0 trillion cubic feet of total gas. Crude oil production reported by the RRC is limited to oil produced from oil leases and does not include condensate, which is reported separately by the RRC.
