production curve

About this image

Oil production in New Mexico from 1981-2021, created from data collected by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Compare this production curve to the production in New Mexico from 1924-2016. The increased production in New Mexico beginning around 2010 is largely due to the combined application of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (aka fracking).
