The Appalachian Basin and the Haynesville Shale are poised to experience the most natural gas output growth from July to August, with projected gains of 207 MMcf/d and 217 MMcf/d, respectively, EIA said in the July edition of its Drilling Productivity Report (DPR), published Monday.

The Anadarko and Permian basins, and the Bakken, Eagle Ford and Niobrara shales, make up the other regions tracked by the DPR. Among these, natural gas output gains also are expected from the Bakken (plus 31 MMcf/d), Eagle Ford (plus 129 MMcf/d), Niobrara (plus 10 MMcf/d) and Permian (plus 166...
