Thank A Roughneck

Roughnecks are the unsung heroes of our state. Hardworking roughnecks are increasing American energy security, and keeping the lights on at home.


A few fast facts on how roughnecks have helped bolster American energy security:

  • The United States exported 27,000 b/d of crude oil in 2007. In 2018, that figure has increased to roughly 2.05 million b/d – transitioning the U.S. from net importer to one step closer to a net exporter.
  • Crude oil imports have also fallen. In 2007, the United States imported 10.03 million b/d. In 2018, that figure had fallen to 7.77 million b/d.
  • The United States was a net exporter of natural gas for over 13 consecutive months between February 2018 and February 2019.
