The demand for ethane increased 21.0% in 1972 to 106,201,000 barrels. More detail on liquefied gases and ethane can be found in the "Natural Gas Liquids" chapter. Other Products.—This category includes refinery gas (still gas) used for fuel, asphalt, petrochemical feedstocks, petroleum coke, lubricating oils, special naphthas, miscellaneous products, road oil, and wax. Refiners used 170,993,000 barrels of still gas for fuel in 1972 and 14,678,000 barrels for petrochemical feedstocks. The domestic demand for asphalt increased 3.3% to 163,788,000 ' barrels (29,779,000 short tons). The demand for petrochemical feedstocks was strong in the domestic market, but exports declined. Domestic demand for the year increased 12.1% to 123,867,000 barrels, and exports decreased 15.3% to 4,457,000 barrels. Sales of marketable coke increased 10.5% in 1972. Exports increased 14.8% to 6,215,000 short tons, and domestic sales increased 7.0% to 7,074 million short tons. Domestic demand for petroleum coke, including 10,590,000 short tons of catalyst coke, was 17,664,000 short tons in 1972, an increase of 10.5%. The demand for lubricating oils increased 4.1% in 1972, but exports declined 6.0%. Domestic demand was 67,796,000 barrels, and exports comprised 14,995,000 barrels. The total demand for special naphthas increased 7.0% in 1972 to 33,375,000 barrels. Domestic demand was 31,888,000 barrels and exports, 1,487,000 barrels. The domestic demand for road oil continued to decline in 1972. Demand was 7,538,000 barrels, down 11.2% from 1971. The domestic demand for petroleum wax increased 3.1% to 5,410,000 barrels, but exports declined 32.0% to 1,129,000 barrels. In addition to the above products refineries produced in small quantities a variety of products (petrolatum, medicinal oils, rust preventives, spray oils, etc,) which the Bureau of Mines grouped together as miscellaneous products. The domestic demand for these products in 1972 was 15,280,000 barrels, and exports were 1,062,000 barrels. Shipments to U.S. Territories, Posses. sions, and Free Trade Zoncs.—Domestic demand, as defined in this chapter, refers to demand in all States of the United States. Shipments from the United States to territories, possessions, and free trade zones are included with exports. Any - for- eign receipts into these areas are not included in total imports shown. Shipments from territories, possessions, or free trade zones to foreign countries are excluded from exports. Shipments from these areas into any State of the United States are included in import data. Districts.—The Bureau of Mines reports production of crude petroleum and natural gas liquids and the number of wells drilled by States. Data for Louisiana, New -Mexico, and Texas are also reported by districts. New Mexico has two widely separated producing areas. The Southeastern district comprises mainly Lea, Eddy, Chaves, and Roosevelt COunties. The Northwestern district comprises mainly San Juan, Rio Arri-ba, Sandoval, and McKinley Counties. Bureau of Mines producing districts in Texas correspond, with one exception, to the following grouping of the Texas Railroad Commission districts: Bureau of Mines districts Gulf Coast West Texas East Proper Panhandle Rest of State: North Central______ South Other East Texas~ Separate production data are shown for the Louisiana Gulf Coast, including the offshore area. Refinery operations are grouped by the Bureau of Mines into another set of districts called refining districts. These refining districts correspond with the grouping originated by the Petroleum Administration for War during World War II and called PAW districts (later changed to PAD districts).
