With four regions expected to see triple-digit increases from October to November, U.S. natural gas production from the lower 48 states’ seven most productive shale plays will jump nearly 1 billion cubic feet per day, according to Kallanish Energy.

The most recent issue of the Drilling Productivity Report, which is produced by the Energy Information Administration, projects total production from the seven regions will increase by 957 million cubic feet per day (Mmcf/d), to 74.06 billion cubic feet per day, from 73.10 Bcf/d.

The Appalachian Basin — the combined Marcellus and Utica shales — is expected to see the biggest month-to-month increase in gas production. The report projects an increase of 337 Mmcf/d, to 29.79 Bcf/d, from 29.45 Bcf/d.
