Oil Production By Country 2020

What country is the largest producer of crude oil?

Crude oil production is defined as the quantities of oil extracted from the ground after the removal of inert matter or impurities. Crude oil is a mineral oil consisting of a mixture of hydrocarbons of natural origin, yellow to black in color, and of variable density and viscosity. Once extracted, crude oil undergoes distillation to break down the liquid into various products depending on weight.

The thousands of products derived from crude oil are very beneficial and have improved the quality of life for people around the world. The largest share of crude oil is used for gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, and heating oils. Heavier products are used to make asphalt for our cars to travel on and lubricating oils such as petroleum jelly for soaps and detergents.
