Abundant Supplies

Q: Should homeowners be concerned about heating oil supplies?

A: Not at all — the United States has a Strategic Petroleum Reserve with a capacity of 727 million barrels, the world’s largest emergency oil stockpile. The country also maintains a one-million barrel heating oil reserve. There are over 50 oil-producing countries in the world, and the U.S. is not dependent on any one country or region for its heating oil supply. Thanks to advancements in drilling technology and increased production from shale and other tight rock formations in North Dakota and
Texas, U.S. domestic crude oil production has reached its highest levels in decades.
• The U.S. is one of the world’s leading oil producers.
• The U.S. produces more crude oil than it imports.
• Domestic oil production is expected to continue
rising for the foreseeable future.
• Bioheat ® fuel is produced in America using
domestic feedstocks.

… and easy deliveries
Q: What’s the easiest way for a homeowner to get a delivery?

A: The easiest way to get heating oil is through automatic delivery. The Oilheat company watches daily temperatures to keep track of how cold the weather has been and calculates an individual burn rate for each customer. This lets the company know just when a customer will need a delivery, long before most people would know it themselves. Automatic delivery provides peace of mind, because the homeowner doesn’t have to think twice about how much fuel is in the tank. Search for:
