New Infrastructure Aims to Increase Takeaway Capacity of Natural Gas from Utica Region

A number of pipeline projects that have been approved, or are in various stages of the approval process, would increase capacity to transport natural gas from the Utica production region in Ohio to natural gas markets. Collectively, these projects could add up to 6.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of takeaway capacity out of the Utica region by the end of 2018. Over the past several years, natural gas production in the Appalachian basin from the Marcellus and Utica shaleshas grown significantly. Because pipeline projects often have longer lead times than production projects, transport […]

Growth in Domestic Natural Gas Production Leads to Development of LNG Export Terminals

March 2016, Vol. 243, No. 3

The first export shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced in the Lower 48 states on February 24 is a milestone reflecting a decade of natural gas production growth that has put the United States in a new position in worldwide energy trade. With the rapid growth of supply from shale gas resources over the past decade, U.S. natural gas production has grown each year since 2006. The resulting decline in domestic natural gas prices has led to rising natural gas exports, both via pipeline to Mexico and, since last week, to overseas markets via […]
