New natural gas pipeline capacity may outpace production gains over next several months


Warning: array_filter() expects parameter 1 to be array, string given in /home/eva/public_html/wp-content/plugins/Ultimate-Premium-Plugin/usm_premium_icons.php on line 627

Over 16.4 BCFD of new natural gas pipeline capacity is expected to come into service between now and October 2018. A large chunk of this capacity (7.2 BCFD) aims to provide incremental production takeaway capacity, primarily in the Marcellus/Utica region (see map below). However, EVA’s most recent natural gas production forecast suggests these pipelines may […]
