Title: Market shares and individual company data for US energy markets: 1950-1984

Revised and updated data summarize trends in concentration in US energy markets. In addition, the report discusses methodology and definitions, provides company-by-company data for 1984 and several earlier years on market shares in various segments of the petroleum industry, and similar market share data for coal, uranium, and all-energy combined. Most measures of concentration in 1984 increased because of oil company mergers, but ratios are still below the level of a decade ago. While domestic oil production concentration rose in 1984, only the 8-firm concentration ratio showed a significant increase. Oil reserve ownership is more concentrated than production. An increasing concentration in refining capacity and refinery runs reflects large-company mergers and shutdowns by small refiners. 101 tables.
