The agency’s latest Drilling Productivity Report (DPR), published Monday, models a combined 96.281 Bcf/d of natural gas production from seven Lower 48 drilling regions, a month/month increase of 535 MMcf/d. 

Carrying over from month-earlier projections, the Haynesville will lead natural gas production gains month/month, accounting for 152 MMcf/d of growth and raising its output to 16.409 Bcf/d, according to the latest DPR.
