Oil and Gas Production in Tennessee

There was no significant oil production in Tennessee until a 1911 strike of crude near Oneida at about 950 feet in fissures in the Newman limestone.

Several wells have been drilled in the area since then, some of which were dry while others produced oil. The largest one yielded 340 barrels daily for several months, then it suddenly went dry. Several first wells began at 6 or 8 barrels per day and are still maintaining that output.

In 2014, Tennessee ranked 27th in the U.S. for crude oil production. The state ranked 26th for its natural gas production the same year.
