According to the US Energy Information Administration we get about 645,000 barrels of oil per day from Alaska with land drilling, and 203,000 from offshore drilling in Alaska.
No oil is currently derived from Alaska although there is a pipeline that is ready to go when congress approves drilling in ANWR. Nevertheless, the opening of the ANWR Area to oil and natural gas development is projected to increase domestic crude oil production starting in 2018. In the mean ANWR oil resource case, additional oil production resulting from the opening of ANWR reaches 780,000 barrels per day in 2027 and then declines to 710,000 barrels per day in 2030.
“No oil is currently derived from Alaska” is incorrect. See the first answer posted.
