Crude oil and natural gas production as reported to the Railroad Commission of Texas for May 2021 came from 163,777 oil wells and 85,606 gas wells.
The RRC reports that from June 2020 to May 2021, total Texas reported production was 1.4 billion barrels of crude oil and 10.1 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.
