US natural gas production was up 0.5 bcfd to 78.56 bcfd in April of 2011. Year over year gas production has now grown almost 5 bcfd. The Haynesville Shale in Louisiana, the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania, and the Eagle Ford Shale in Texas are all driving shale gas production to new records.
“Louisiana doubled its production in April 2011 when compared with April 2009, reaching 8.15 billion cubic feet per day Bcf/d. Likewise, Other States showed significant growth since April 2009, totaling 26.6 percent or 3.88 Bcf/d. Drilling activity in the Haynesville and Marcellus shale plays are largely responsible for the gains in Louisiana and Other States. Over the same period, the lower 48 States increased production by 9.3 percent or 5.88 Bcf/d.”
