Americas: Production

October 2016

Falling gas output in the US could cause supply tightness in parts of the country during the winter despite healthy storage.

The US produced 439.1 bcm of dry gas over the first seven months of 2016, which was a fall of 1.1% on an annual basis. More importantly, July was the fifth consecutive month that output fell year on year, with the rate of decline increasing each month. GGA expects dry gas production in the US to fall by 2.2% year on year in 2016, to 744.5 bcm.
