Marcellus places U.S. among top world shale gas producers

Staff Reports

A recent report from the Energy Information Administration states that the United States is currently one of only four countries in the world that are producing commercial volumes of either natural gas from shale formations or crude oil from tight formations.

The report also suggests that a large portion of shale gas production growth is taking place in the Marcellus Shale. There, dry natural gas production has considerably increased in the past three years, from an average of 4.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2011 to an average of 14.6 Bcf/d in 2014.
