Nebraska's Petroleum Profile

When people think of Nebraska, images of oil fields and refineries do not come to mind.  Even though Nebraska has more than 1,000 oil wells, it is not a large oil producing region. 

Nebraska has no petroleum refineries, but the state does produce 8,000 barrels of crude oil a day.  Nebraska's petroleum-related infrastructure also includes several crude oil product pipelines. 

Almost half of the petroleum consumed in Nebraska is used in the form of gasoline.
