    ABOUT THAT HUNDRED YEARS OF NAT GAS

    U.S. Cuts Estimate for Marcellus Shale Gas Reserves by 66%
    Christine Buurma, January 23, 2012 (Bloomberg News)

    "The U.S. Energy Department cut its estimate for natural gas reserves in the Marcellus shale formation by 66 percent, citing improved data on drilling and production…About 141 trillion cubic feet of gas can be recovered from the Marcellus shale using current technology, down from the previous estimate of 410 trillion…About 482 trillion cubic feet can be produced from shale basins across the U.S., down 42 percent from 827 trillion [estimated] last year…

    "The daily rate of Marcellus production doubled during 2011 [making far more information about unproved technically recoverable gas available]…The estimated Marcellus reserves would meet U.S. gas demand for about six years, using 2010 consumption data…down from 17 years in the previous outlook."

    "The Marcellus Shale is a rock formation stretching across the U.S. Northeast, including Pennsylvania and New York. Shale producers use a technique known as hydraulic fracturing, which involves pumping water, sand and chemicals underground to extract gas embedded in the rock…The U.S. Geological Survey said in August that it would reduce its estimate of undiscovered Marcellus Shale natural gas by as much as 80 percent after an updated assessment by government geologists.

    "Shale gas will probably account for 49 percent of total U.S. dry gas production in 2035, up from 23 percent in 2010…Gas’s share of electric power generation will increase to 27 percent in 2035 from 24 percent in 2010…[and] the U.S. may becoe a net exporter of liquefied natural gas in 2016 and a net exporter of natural gas in 2021. U.S. LNG exports may start with a capacity of 1.1 billion cubic feet a day in 2016 and increase by an additional 1.1 billion cubic feet per day in 2019…"
