High US Production Enabled Build in US Natural Gas Storage


Above normal injections into US storage have brought total inventory levels up from 12% below the five-year average in mid August to just 3.4% below in EIA data released yesterday.

  • Dry natural gas production has averaged record volumes of over 96bcf/d so far in 2022, up 4% from last year and up 2.2% from 2019 annual production.
