According to the CIA’s World Factbook, which is based on 2007-2008 estimates, there are 140 countries that export a significant amount of oil. The top five are: Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada. The US is number 17, while the European Union is listed as one country at number 9. The country that exports the least oil (but is still a recognized exporter) is Djibouti.
Many countries, including the U.S., export their oil. This came to about 63.8 million barrels in 2004 worldwide. The top ten oil exporters are the following: Saudi Arabia, Russia, Norway, United Arab, Iran, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Kuwait, and Nigeria.
For the record, the CIA report includes both crude oil and refined products. The US only exports tiny amounts of crude oil, 20,000 to 60,000 barrels per day, all of it to Canada. So counting crude oil only, the US would rank about #81 on that list.
