The Energy Information Administration (EIA) has some items you may find of interest:
- Trends in Eagle Ford drilling, including animation: "The animated map shows that the Eagle Ford shale comprises three 'windows' (roughly parallel acreage swaths). Production from these windows is increasingly liquids-rich moving generally from south to north. The circular yellow and green producing well markers signify the more 'oily' wells, with the red markers representing wells that produce mostly natural gas."
- Pennsylvania production driving NE natural gas growth: "According to Bentek Energy, LLC estimates, natural gas production in West Virginia and Pennsylvania now averages almost 4 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), more than five times as much as the average from 2004 through 2008. It accounts for over 85% of total Northeastern natural gas production."
- Corresponding use of PA natural gas for power generation: "The growth in natural gas-fired generation is reflected in the composition of electric generation in Pennsylvania. In 2001, coal accounted for 57% of Pennsylvania's total generation compared to just 2% for natural gas (see chart below). In contrast, during the first half of 2011, coal made up about 46% of total generation while natural gas generation grew to 17% of total generation."
Lots of good information there.
