Report: Appalachia Natural Gas Productivity Increased Again in 2019

Increased U.S. natural gas production has helped bring lower energy costs to manufacturers. The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) latest drilling report shows that domestic production increased in 2019 due to, in part, greater productivity of new wells drilled in shale and tight formations. Since 2007, gross natural gas production from the EIA’s Appalachia (includes eastern Ohio) and Haynesville (Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas) regions has grown at an average annual rate of 20%. 6/17/2020
