U.S. #oil output almost back down to level of last #OPEC meeting

Interesting chart from this Bloomberg article: OPEC is about to crush the US oil boom.

Key Points

Saudis oil strategy appears to be working:

1.       Oil prices remains 33% percent lower than when OPEC revealed its strategy on Nov. 27.
2.       U.S. crude production has retreated about 500,000 barrels a day from the three-decade peak reached in June to 9.1 million a day in the week to Oct. 9, according to data from the Energy Information Administration.
3.       The losses will accelerate next year with a drop of 390,000 barrels a day in annual average production to 8.86 million barrels a day, according to the EIA. OPEC's fortunes will improve as the U.S. declines, with the IEA predicting demand for the group's crude climbing to 31.1 million barrels a day next year from 29.3 million in 2014
