EIA Report: Marcellus Region Expected to Provide 18% of Total U.S. Natural Gas Production in December 2013

On December 9, 2013, the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest Drilling Productivity Report estimated natural gas production in the Marcellus region will exceed 13 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in December 2013.  The Marcellus region, which produced less than 2 Bcf/d in 2010, is estimated to account for 18% of the total U.S. natural gas production this month.

The EIA attributes the region’s increased production to the efficiency of new wells and increased output from previously shut-in wells, or wells that were operating at reduced volume due to constraints in takeaway capacity.
