Driven by associated output from the Permian Basin, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) is raising its forecast for domestic natural gas production in 2023, according to updated projections.

EIA’s latest Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), published Tuesday, calls for U.S. natural gas production to average 100.4 Bcf/d next year, up from its month-earlier forecast for output of 99.7 Bcf/d.

“Although we continue to expect natural gas production in the Permian Basin to be limited early in 2023 by the lack of pipeline capacity to bring associated natural gas production to market, we expect these constraints will be resolved earlier than we had previously assumed,” researchers said.
