EIA Releases Annual Gas Report for 2015

The Energy Information Administration has released its Natural Gas Annual report for the year 2015.  It's a huge report, chock full of information from around the country.

Here are some of the main points:
* The 2015 Natural Gas Annual shows record U.S. natural gas production levels for the fifth consecutive year and record consumption levels for the sixth consecutive year. 
* Domestic dry natural gas production of 27.1 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), or 74.1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), in 2015 was 4.5% above the 2014 level. For the third consecutive year, Pennsylvania saw the largest total gain in annual production, increasing from 11.56 Bcf/d in 2014 to 13.04 Bcf/d in 2015. Production in Ohio increased the most, percentage-wise, of any state, for the second consecutive year. Dry natural gas production in Ohio rose more than 99%, from 1.31 Bcf/d in 2014 to 2.62 Bcf/d in 2015. 
* Deliveries to consumers of natural gas in 2015 were a record level of 25.1 Tcf, or 68.6 Bcf/d, an increase of 2.8% from 2014 deliveries. Deliveries to the electric power sector increased by 18.7% in 2015 to a record level of 26.5 Bcf/d. Deliveries of natural gas used as vehicle fuel also increased (by 11.6%) in 2015. Increases in these two sectors were offset by decreases in deliveries to the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, which dropped by 9.4%, 7.7%, and 1.5%, respectively, from 2014 levels. 
* In 2015, U.S. natural gas imports increased year-to-year for the first time since 2007. Total imports of natural gas in 2015 were 2,718 Bcf, an increase of 0.8% from 2014. Exports of natural gas increased year-to-year for the first time since 2012, from 1,514 Bcf in 2014 to 1,783 Bcf in 2015, an increase of 17.8%.
