Marcellus Totals 18% of U.S. Gas Output

EIA notes increasing well hook-ups


Published:

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said natural gas output from the Marcellus shale region will exceed 13 Bfcd (368 x 106 m3/d) in December, equivalent to 18% of the national total.

The Marcellus region of Pennsylvania and West Virginia produced less than 2 Bcfd (56 x 106 m3/d) as recently as 2010.

“The rise of Marcellus production in both absolute terms and as a share of total U.S. production is a key development in a rapidly evolving U.S. natural gas market,” EIA said.

The agency said the continued increase in production has been driven by the growth in the efficiency of new wells, since the number of drilling rigs in the area has remained relatively flat in recent months.

EIA also said a contributing factor has been the increased output from previously shut-in wells, or wells that were operating at reduced volume, because of constraints in pipeline takeaway capacity.
