Bolstered by another strong month of growth from the Haynesville Shale, domestic natural gas production from seven key onshore plays should grow to over 96.6 Bcf/d from January to February, updated modeling from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows.


The agency said in its latest Drilling Productivity Report (DPR), published Tuesday, that it expects natural gas production from the Haynesville to grow by 145 MMcf/d month/month to 16.585 Bcf/d in February. That’s consistent with last month’s DPR, which also had the Haynesville leading domestic natural gas production growth.

Alongside the Haynesville, the DPR also tracks production trends in the Anadarko, Appalachia and Permian basins, as well as the Bakken, Eagle Ford and Niobrara shales. Combined natural gas...
