Colorado producers to break oil-production record

March 3, 2014

Colorado is edging toward breaking a nearly 60-year-old oil production record, while natural-gas production has slowed somewhat, Denver Post reported on February 28.

Production numbers are slowly trickling in, with not quite all of December accounted for, but as of February 27, they were already at 57.88 million barrels of oil produced for 2013 — just shy of the 58.6 million-barrel record set in 1956.
