Natural gas production from seven key Lower 48 regions tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) will slide from April to May, driven by declines in the Haynesville Shale and the Appalachian Basin.

EIA’s latest Drilling Productivity Report (DPR), published Monday, modeled a combined 99.9 Bcf/d of natural gas output in May from seven major U.S. onshore producing regions, a small sequential decrease from output of 100.2 Bcf/d in April.

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