New Methodology for Natural Gas Production Estimates
Beginning this month, EIA introduces a new method to estimate monthly natural gas production and uses it to estimate production in February 2010 and to revise previous estimates for 2009 and January 2010. Using the new method, EIA revised January 2010 estimates downward 0.6 Bcf/d for the lower 48 States. Nearly all of this revision came from 3 areas: the Federal Gulf of Mexico (GOM), Louisiana, and Texas. Revisions to 2009 estimates for the lower 48 States were generally negative as well, ranging from -0.3 percent at the beginning of the year to -1.3 percent at year end.

February production increased 1.6 percent over January (1.0 Bcf/d) in the lower 48 States, with the largest increase seen in Texas with roughly a 0.35 Bcf/d (1.7 percent) increase. Louisiana displayed the largest percentage increase at 5.7 percent or about 0.3 Bcf/d. Continuing development of the Haynesville shale supported the Louisiana increase.

The new estimation methodology relies on the most recently available information, both to refresh the sample of companies surveyed and to estimate the production of companies not included in the sample. The natural gas production industry has become much more dynamic in recent years, and making extensive use of more historical data, as EIA did in the past, has become less appropriate. Review Results contains additional information on the comprehensive EIA-914 survey methodology review and the alternative approaches tested. A separate document describes the 2009 Revisions resulting from the change to the new methodology. And finally, ICF International explains the results of their independent review in a paper given to the American Statistical Association Committee on Energy Statistics.
