Our Magic 8 Ball predicts one heckuva chill ride for U.S. gas producers ramping up output ahead of the heating season. Barely two weeks into November, production already has surged to 93.9 BCFD—on course to break October’s record and lead us into a winter that’s expected to lift volumes to more than 96 BCFD, shattering last year’s record high, pre-pandemic. Reese Energy Consulting today is studying the incredible verve happening right now for natural gas producers and midstreamers operating in the nation’s most gas-rich basins. The Marcellus is soon to enjoy an added 580 MMCFD of transportation capacity starting December when Transcontinental’s Leidy South expansion goes online. In the Haynesville, it’s all about flowing more gas to LNG export terminals where Cheniere’s Sabine Pass has already hit record highs this month of 4.4 BCFD, and Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass trains 1 and 2 are nearing startup. Tulsa-based ONEOK has lifted its foot off the brakes to complete a 200 MMCFD gas processing facility in the Bakken and a 125 MBPD NGL fractionator in Mont Belvieu, Texas. In other words, it’s a dandy time to be in the gas biz.
