Led by declines in the Haynesville Shale and Appalachian Basin, Lower 48 natural gas production, as represented by seven key onshore regions tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), will fall by nearly 500 MMcf/d from October to November.


EIA in its latest monthly Drilling Productivity Report (DPR), published Monday, modeled combined natural gas production of around 98.8 Bcf/d in November from the seven regions, a sequential decrease of 451 MMcf/d. 

In addition to the Appalachia and Haynesville regions, the DPR models production trends in the Anadarko and Permian basins, as well as the Bakken, Eagle Ford and Niobrara shales.
