Total U.S oil output has contracted by a record one-third, or 3.5 million barrels per day and more, as anomalous low temperatures caused disruptions to well operations in Texas, the country’s largest oil-producing region, according to a watchdog.

Bloomberg reported on Wednesday that prior to the winter freeze, the U.S daily output stood at some 11 million barrels.

Along with causing massive power outages, one of the coldest U.S winters in decades has forced a number of largest oil companies, including Motiva and Exxon Mobil, to temporarily shut down their refineries, according to the report.
