US emerges UK’s biggest oil supplier, overtakes Nigeria, others

Crude oil exports from the United States to the United Kingdom overtook supplies from other countries including Nigeria for the first time since such shipments began in 2015.

Reports show that in January, the US supplied the equivalent of almost one in every four barrels of crude processed by UK oil refineries, that’s more than two hundred sixty thousand barrels per day.

That level was more than Norway, Russia, Nigeria or Algeria, according to data from the cargo-tracking company Kpler, which have all been major suppliers to the UK in recent years. Meanwhile, operators in the UK portion of the North Sea have battled to stem production declines.
