By Gao Lu

HOUSTON, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- U.S. crude oil production increased during the week ending Oct. 23, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Wednesday.

According to the EIA, U.S. crude oil production averaged 11.1 million barrels per day (b/d) last week, 1.2 million b/d more than the previous week and down by 1.5 million b/d from this time last year.

The United States has become a major oil producer in the past years with the help of its shale oil production growth. Meanwhile, China continues to be one of the world's biggest oil consumers.

According to the latest release from the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics, China's crude oil output increased 2.4 percent year-on-year to 16.1 million tonnes in September, accelerating from an increase of 2.3 percent in August.
