In May, production in the Lower 48 States increased by 1.2 percent or 0.92 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). Other States had the largest volumetric increase at 2.6 percent or 0.77 Bcf/d primarily because of new wells in the Marcellus and Utica shale. Oklahoma and Texas reported gains of 0.8 percent or 0.05 Bcf/d and 0.7 percent or 0.17 Bcf/d respectively, mainly because of new wells coming online. New Mexico had a decline of 3.6 percent or 0.13 Bcf/d because of many operators reporting small decreases.

Note: Data presented in the table are monthly natural gas gross withdrawals estimated from data collected on the EIA-914 survey. In 2012, 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.
