Texas gas output rose in January while oil production held steady

Texas natural gas production rose while oil output was level in January, the state Railroad Commission reported.

Texas drillers produced 608.4 Bcf of gas in January, or 19.6 Bcf/d, reported on a preliminary basis. This beat out December 2016's preliminary average of 18.3 Bcf/d but trailed January 2016's preliminary report of 19.8 Bcf/d, which was then adjusted to 22.9 Bcf/d.

The state oil and gas regulator reported preliminary oil production of 75.3 million barrels for January, or 2.4 million barrels per day, remaining flat in comparison to December's output. January 2016 brought a daily average of 2.5 MMbbl/d on a preliminary basis. That total was later adjusted to 2.9 MMbbl/d.

Webb County was the state's largest gas producer in January, with a preliminary total of 60.8 Bcf, while Tarrant County came in second, reporting 41.0 Bcf.

Midland County topped the state's list of oil producers for the month, with a preliminary total of 6.0 MMbbl, with Karnes County not far behind with 5.6 MMbbl.
