    Historical Source data of oil production, consumption and discoveries

I've been searching the whole evening for a data source of the historical oil production, consumption and discoveries.

Basically I'm on a fact finding mission and want to be able to make graphs myself, so I can play around with reserves left etc.

So far I've used:

  • Google, first stop as usual
  • Google images, clicking on the source linkes of historical graphs
  • eia.gov data, here I could found good data on oil production, but it only goes back to 1980

What I find is that most graphs I find seem a rehash of an older graph. But where did the original figures come from? How where they established?

I hope you can help me out here.

    Some oil data sources

I use the BP data set a lot, but it’s spottybefore the mid-1980’s too.  However you can get some reasonably good data going back to about 1965.  It’s one of hte better free data sets out there, and you can download it in CSV or .xlsx format.

Another source, which I cannot verify where *they* got their data from is here:

http://www.tsp-data-portal.org/Breakdown-of-Energy-Production-Statistics

This data set will spit out results going back into the 1920’s and even earlier.  

Trading Economics goes back to 1950, but you need to subscribe to gain access to the full data set:
