So far in 2015, operators in the Appalachian Basin have been adjusting to changes in commodity prices. Conservative exploration and production strategies are being emphasized in order to better position operators in the depressed price environment and become well positioned for a price recovery. But despite slowdowns in new wells drilled and completed, production growth remains positive as the focus shifts to increasing efficiencies. What’s more, new infrastructure projects are expected to ease the burden of oversupply and move the Appalachian’s gas reserves throughout North America. Additionally, the Nexus pipeline coming online in November will open transportation capacity from the region to the Gulf Coast, where prices are more favorable.
