National Oil and Gas Assessment 2013 Assessment Updates

 

The main objective of the National Assessment of Oil and Gas Project is to assess the potential for undiscovered oil and natural gas resources of the onshore United States. The last comprehensive National Assessment was completed by the USGS in 1995, and since 2000 the USGS has been re-assessing basins of the U.S. that are considered to be priorities for oil and gas resources rather than assessing all of the basins of the U.S. These 32 basins represent about 97% of the discovered and undiscovered oil and gas resources of the United States. As each basin is re-assessed the assessment results are added to the tables, and these new values replace the assessment results from 1995.
