June 2021

  • In June 2021, dry natural gas production increased year over year for the month, for the second consecutive month. The preliminary level for dry natural gas production in June 2021 was 2,793 billion cubic feet (Bcf), or 93.1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). This level was 4.7 Bcf/d (5.4%) higher than the June 2020 level of 88.4 Bcf/d. Both gross withdrawals and marketed production also increased from June 2020:
    • Gross withdrawals: 3,396 Bcf for the month, or 113.2 Bcf/d
      • Up 5.3% compared with 107.5 Bcf/d in June 2020
    • • Highest for the month since we began tracking them in 1980
    • Marketed production: 3,031 Bcf for the month, or 101.0 Bcf/d
      • Up 5.4% compared with 95.9 Bcf/d in June 2020
    • • Highest for the month since we began tracking it in 1973
  • Estimated natural gas consumption in June 2021 was 2,218 Bcf, or 73.9 Bcf/d. This level was 2.8 Bcf/d (3.9%) higher than the June 2020 level of 71.2 Bcf/d. Natural gas consumption was the highest for the month since we began using the current definitions for consuming sectors in 2001.
  • The year-over-year average daily rate of consumption of dry natural gas in June 2021 increased in three of the four consuming sectors. Deliveries of natural gas by consuming sector in June 2021 were as follows:
    • Residential deliveries: 128 Bcf for the month, or 4.3 Bcf/d
      • Down 5.9% compared with 4.5 Bcf/d in June 2020
    • Commercial deliveries: 142 Bcf for the month, or 4.7 Bcf/d
    • • Up 7.6% compared with 4.4 Bcf/d in June 2020
    • Industrial deliveries: 640 Bcf for the month, or 21.3 Bcf/d
    • • Up 5.4% compared with 20.2 Bcf/d in June 2020
    • Electric power deliveries: 1,082 Bcf for the month, or 36.1 Bcf/d
    • • Up 3.4% compared with 34.9 Bcf/d in June 2020
      • Highest for the month since we began using the current definitions for consuming sectors in 2001
  • Net natural gas imports (imports minus exports) were -328 Bcf, or -10.9 Bcf/d, in June 2021, making the United States a net natural gas exporter. The average daily rate of net imports was the lowest for the month since we began tracking imports and exports in 1973, as the United States exported 2.6 times more natural gas than it imported in June 2021. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports in June 2021 more than doubled compared with June 2020. The average daily rate of LNG exports was also the highest for the month since we began tracking LNG in 1997. In June 2021, the United States exported 9.0 Bcf/d of LNG to 25 countries. Natural gas imports and exports in June 2021 were as follows:
    • Total imports: 207 Bcf for the month, or 6.9 Bcf/d
      • Up 10.7% compared with 6.2 Bcf/d in June 2020
    • Total exports: 536 Bcf for the month, or 17.9 Bcf/d
      • Up 58.6% compared with 11.3 Bcf/d in June 2020
