The February 2012 Natural Gas Monthly, featuring data through December 2011, has been released. Spurred by shale drilling and resulting lower price levels, the preliminary year-end data for 2011 indicate that both natural gas production and consumption levels were at record-levels, with gross production at 28.6 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) and total consumption at 24.4 Tcf, an increase 6.5 and 2.5 percent above 2010 levels, respectively.
Additionally, this issue of the Natural Gas Monthly features State-level gas consumption and prices used for electricity generation through December 2011 (the State-level data formerly lagged 30 days behind the other gas consumption series).
