Natural Gas Annual 2020

  • The 2020 Natural Gas Annual shows U.S. dry natural gas production, after reaching a record high volume in 2019, dropped year-over-year in 2020, for the first time since 2016. Consumption also declined in 2020 after hitting a record high in 2019.
  • Domestic dry natural gas production in 2020 was 33.5 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), or 91.5 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), which is 1.5% lower than the 2019 level of 92.9 Bcf/d.
    • Ohio saw the largest volumetric decrease in annual dry natural gas production, decreasing 10.6%, from 7.1 Bcf/d in 2019 to 6.4 Bcf/d in 2020.
    • Oklahoma saw the second-largest decrease in production, decreasing 8.3%, from 7.5 Bcf/d in 2019 to 6.9 Bcf/d in 2020.
    • West Virginia saw the largest increase in production, increasing 20.6%, from 5.4 Bcf/d in 2019 to 6.5 Bcf/d in 2020.
  • Deliveries of natural gas to consumers in 2020 were 30.5 Tcf, or 83.3 Bcf/d, a decrease of 2.4% from 2019 deliveries. Four of five sectors (residential, commercial, industrial, and vehicle fuel) saw a decrease in deliveries to consumers in 2020, and the electric power sector saw an increase in deliveries to consumers in 2020:
    • Deliveries to residential consumers decreased 7.1% between 2019 and 2020 to 12.77 Bcf/d.
    • Deliveries to commercial consumers decreased 10.0% to 8.66 Bcf/d.
    • Deliveries to industrial consumers decreased 3.4% to 22.27 Bcf/d.
    • Deliveries as vehicle fuel decreased 7.8% to 0.13 Bcf/d.
    • Deliveries to the electric power sector increased 2.6% in 2020 to 31.74 Bcf/d. Electric power deliveries were the highest for any year since EIA began tracking them in 1997.
  • For the fourth consecutive year, the United States was a natural gas net exporter (exports minus imports) in 2020, exporting 2,732 Bcf (7.5 Bcf/d) more natural gas than it imported for the year.
    • U.S. natural gas imports decreased for the third consecutive year. Total imports of natural gas in 2020 were 2,551 Bcf (7.0 Bcf/d), a decrease of 7.2% from 2,742 Bcf (7.5 Bcf/d) in 2019.
    • Exports of natural gas increased year to year for the sixth consecutive year. Total exports of natural gas in 2020 were 5,284 Bcf (14.4 Bcf/d), an increase of 13.1% from 4,658 Bcf (12.8 Bcf/d) in 2019. Total exports for 2020 were the highest of any year on record, dating back to 1973. The United States exported natural gas to 38 countries in 2020, the most ever, up from 37 countries in 2019 and 33 countries in 2018.
