The news on Pennsylvania natural gas keeps getting better, production reaches new highs, and pipelines are coming online to deliver the natural gas.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) published their weekly natural gas update for week ending November 1, showing Pennsylvania’s natural gas production has reached a new high. Pennsylvania’s natural gas production has increased dramatically since 2013 with an increase of 80%. Marcellus Shale and fracking have boosted Pennsylvania up as one of the top producers of natural gas in the nation.
As Pennsylvania’s natural gas production increases, new pipeline infrastructure is being put in place to deliver natural gas to the market. Places such as New England and Upstate New York, where their heating bills have been some of the highest in the nation, will finally able to see some relief.
