Stuart at Early Warning points to a news item noting the American EIA will no longer be publishing statistics about foreign oil production - EIA Slashing Energy Data . From my limited understanding of this they were paying IHS about $1 million a year for the data (and maybe Wood Mackenzie another $300k for their data) and while you could quibble about the accuracy of the data provided by either source, it doesn't seem to be a huge cost saving.
Via Gregor, the following immediate cuts are amongst those being made in production of EIA stats, in response to the latest budget cuts.
There are more detailed in the press release. There's some pretty big deal stuff that's being slashed. It's certainly not going to make doing energy analysis any easier.
