Growth Impact of Greeley’s Top Industries: Energy

Weld County, also known as the Greeley MSA, represents the top producing energy county of Colorado. 87% of the State’s oil and 45% of all natural gas in Colorado comes from Weld County.

This month, we take a look at our contribution to the nation’s energy portfolio for oil production. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration in 2021, 71% of total U.S. oil production came from just 5 states. Texas represents 43.0%, followed by North Dakota (10.4%), New Mexico (9.2%), Oklahoma (4.1%) and Colorado (4.0%). Alaska, California, Wyoming, Louisiana and Utah round out the top 10.
