They rank #4 behind Texas, Alaska, and California respectively. However, federal offshore production is technically #1 with about 500mil barrels of oil produced per year….
Dozens of primary products from natural gas through asphalt. Some are: natural gassolventsgasolinediesel oilkerosene/jet fuellubricating oilshome heating oilvaselineparaffina…xel greasebunker grade fuel oilasphaltetc. There are also thousands of secondary products from the ubiquitous plastics to medicines to hydrogen gas. Sometimes crude oil also contains helium gas, which separates in the natural gas fraction and must be extracted in another step.
Every 42-gallon (159-liter) barrel of oil can be refined into 19.4 gallons (73 liters) of gas, 10.5 gallons (40 liters) of diesel, and 4.1 gallons (16 liters) of jet fuel, …not to mention lots of other marketable stuff. Every 42-US-gallon barrel of crude provides a little more than 44 gallons of petroleum products. This is gained due to processing of crude. From one barrel we get (in gallons):7.27 gallons (27.5 liters): Other products (feedstocks for petrochemical plants, asphalt, bitumen, tar, etc.)1.72 gallons (6.5 liters): Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG)3.82 gallons (14.5 liters): Jet Fuel1.76 gallons (6.6 liters): Heavy Fuel Oil (Residual)1.75 gallons (6.6 liters): Other Distillates (Heating Oil)9.21 gallons (35 liters): Diesel19.15 gallons (72.5 liters): Gasoline From petrochemical feedstocks many everyday-life products are then obtained.

On average 20 gallons of gas per barrel. See the California web site: www.energy.ca.gov/gasoline/what's in a barrel oil
By plastic, I believe you meant addition polymers. First of all, crude oil is an incredibly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. When these hydrocarbons are separated using fracti…onal distillation, different alkanes are obtained. When these long-chain alkanes are cracked(process of breaking down the alkanes into smaller hydrocarbons), alkenes (unsaturated hydrocarbons with one more double-bonds) are generally obtained in significant quantities. When these alkenes are put together at around 250 degrees Celsius and at a high pressure of around 2000 atmospheres, the respective addition polymer is formed.
It can cause pollution
Crude oil is feedstock for just about everything under the sun. When crude oil is refined, its various chemical parts are separated and some become gasoline, some lubricants, …some asphalt, and others the raw materials for plastics and rubber and many more things. Here are some examples of what can be obtained from petroleum (crude oil, natural gas, and/or viscous or solid forms): Fuels - like gasoline, diesel, propane (many people use propane to heat their homes), heating oil Heavy bottoms - like asphalt, bitumen, tar Petrochemicals - used as a feedstock for many everyday products: * plastic gadgets, tools, bags, toys * candles * clothing (polyester, nylon) * hand lotions * petroleum jelly * perfume * dishwashing liquids * ink * bubble gums * car tires * ammonia * heart valves * and many more ---- Crude oil is refined and used to make all these products: * Ethane and other short-chain alkanes which are used as fuel * Diesel * Fuel oils * Petrol * Jet fuel * Kerosene * Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) * Natural gas * Alkenes (olefins) which can be manufactured into plastics or other compounds * Lubricants (produces light machine oils, motor oils, and greases, adding viscosity stabilizers as required). * Wax, used in the packaging of frozen foods, among others. * Sulfur or Sulfuric acid. These are a useful industrial materials. Sulfuric acid is usually prepared as the acid precursor oleum, a byproduct of sulfur removal from fuels. * Bulk tar. * Asphalt * Petroleum coke, used in speciality carbon products or as solid fuel. * Paraffin wax * Aromatic petrochemicals to be used as precursors in other chemical production.

The products of the refined products include; 1) Cosmetics. 2) Tires. 3) Plastics. 4) Paints. 5) Rubber (synthetic). 6) Glue. 7) Drugs. 8) Detergents. 9) Pesticides. 10) Petrol additives. We do not know who or what they are. You didn't say.
they are used to make fuels like petroleum and diesel fuel,jet fuel,natural gas. and then they are used to make plastics and asphalt.
Nigeria is the largest oil producing in the world with her bad government.
