In December, production in the Lower 48 states increased by 1.7 percent or 1.42 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). Other States had the largest volume increase at 3.0 percent or 1.01 Bcf/d primarily because of new wells coming online and shut-in wells coming back online. Texas had the second largest volume increase at 2.1 percent or 0.50 Bcf/d for the same reason, new wells coming online and shut-in wells returning to production.

Note: Data presented in the table are monthly natural gas gross withdrawals estimated from data collected on the EIA-914 survey. In 2013, data are from the EIA Natural Gas Annual. Gross withdrawals are converted to marketed natural gas production which is reported on the EIA website in the Natural Gas Data Tables, and in the Natural Gas Monthly and Natural Gas Annual reports. Marketed production is calculated from gross withdrawals by subtracting gas used for repressuring, quantities vented and flared, and nonhydrocarbon gases removed in treating or processing operations.
