Marcellus Shale natural gas production
In its Drilling Productivity Report on January 11, 2016, the EIA (U.S. Energy Information Administration) estimated that the Marcellus Shale’s natural gas production totaled ~15.6 Bcf (billion cubic feet) per day in December 2015. That’s a ~1% decrease over November 2015’s production level. It’s also 1% lower than production a year ago.
Month-over-month, the natural gas production growth rate in the Marcellus Shale has gradually fallen in the past six months.
