Natural gas output from US' Marcellus edges closer to 15 Bcf/d: EIA

The report said gas output from the Marcellus will rise to 14.77 Bcf/d in May from 14.52 Bcf/d in April, thanks in part to a projected increase in new well production/rig to 6,501 Mcf/d in May from 6,455 Mcf/d this month.

Louisiana's Haynesville Shale has begun to show new life after drillers left the play three years ago. The agency is projecting gas production will rise to 6.615 Bcf/d in May, 11,000 Mcf/d, above April's 6.604 Bcf/d. Production in the play peaked at about 10 Bcf/d in 2012.

EIA also said new-well gas production/rig in May in the Haynesville will increase 62 Mcf/d from April's 5,230 Mcf/d.

Production from the premier oil shales -- North Dakota's Bakken and Texas' Eagle Ford -- will improve slightly, EIA said in its report. The Bakken will add 21,000 b/d of production in May to just over 1 million b/d total production.

Eagle Ford production in May is projected to rise 31,000 b/d from this month to 1.38 million b/d.

Colorado's Niobrara shale will see 5,000 b/d of crude production growth and 24,000 Mcf/d of gas growth by May for 311,000 b/d of total crude production and 4.17 Bcf/d of gas, the EIA said.
