Natural Gas Monthly Contacts
- In November, dry natural gas production was the highest for the month since EIA began reporting dry natural gas production data in 1973. Preliminary dry natural gas production for November 2015 was 2,227 billion cubic feet (Bcf), or 74.2 Bcf/day. This level was a 1.3 Bcf/day (1.7%) increase from production of 73.0 Bcf/day in November 2014.
- Preliminary dry natural gas consumption for November 2015 was 2,252 Bcf, or 75.1 Bcf/day. This level was a decrease of 4.9% from 2,369 Bcf in November 2014, or 3.9 Bcf/day. This decrease in consumption was in part because of significantly warmer temperatures in November 2015, compared to November 2014, across the United States.
- Year-over-year total consumption of dry natural gas in November decreased in three of the four consuming sectors, with the exception being electric power deliveries, which increased significantly year to year. Deliveries of natural gas by consuming sector in November were as follows:
