Natural gas production and end uses

Natural gas production rose by 15% from 2009 to 2013. More important than the growth is that shale gas (from fracking) is now the primary production source. Electric power generation is the primary consumer of natural gas. This directly impacts electricity rates. Production projections with only modest rises in demand will create more opportunities for natural gas export.

  • 4. ElectricityMatch.com Natural Gas Production by Source Production from shale gas wells dramatically increased between 2009 and 2013 due to advances in recovery technologies like hydraulic fracturing (fracking).

  • 5. ElectricityMatch.com Consumption by Consumer Segment Natural gas is also used in a number of industrial manufacturing processes such as heating and drying as well as a feedstock for pharmaceuticals and fertilizer. Electric power generation is the primary consumer of natural gas. Electricity rates, therefore, are highly correlated with natural gas prices. Electric Generation, 34% Industrial, 31% Residential, 21% Commercial, 14%
  • 6. ElectricityMatch.com Residential End-Use Consumption Space heating varies greatly due to climate. The New York- New Jersey- Pennsylvania region has the highest space heating usage (85,242 million Btu) while the Texas-Oklahoma-Arkansas-Louisiana region uses the least amount of natural gas for heating (33,891 million Btu). Space Heating, 57% Water Heating, 23% Cooking, 5% Clothes Drying, 5% Fireplaces, 10%
  • 7. ElectricityMatch.com Commercial End-Use Consumption Commercial natural gas end-uses are more diverse than those in the residential sector. Natural gas may be used in commercial building combined heat and power systems, in cooling systems, and as a fuel for onsite power generation. Space Heating, 50% Water Heating, 13% Cooking, 6% Other, 31%
  • 8. ElectricityMatch.com Production: Historical and Projected U.S. natural gas production increased by almost 4 trillion cubic feet per year between 2009 and 2013. Consumption is only expected to increase by 2.35 trillion cubic feet per year between 2010 and 2035. Advances in production outpacing increases in consumption will put downward pressure on domestic prices and create additional opportunities for export. 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 2000 2005 2010 2015 2020 2025 2030 2035 Consumption-trillioncubicfeet
