Last month, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released the 2018 Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) Primer. The recently released primer is an update from the 2017 version and includes new data from the reference case for the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) 2018 Annual Energy Outlook as well as forecasts from a recent EIA Short-term Energy Outlook. Of particular note, the primer highlights how natural gas in Appalachia is growing very quickly. In addition, the primer showcases how substantial increases in natural gas and NGLs infrastructure investments by industry will support increased production in the Appalachian region. The primer is available on DOE’s website.
