ICF International has released projections for natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil production across the U.S. and Canada through 2035.
The first-quarter 2014 Detailed Production Report forecasts slowed gas production rates across the Haynesville Shale, the Greater Green River Basin, the Barnett Shale and the Fayetteville Shale due to a decrease in gas drilling activity, ICF said Thursday.
Natural gas liquids production in the U.S. has increased by more than 600,000 barrels per day in the last five years and the report projects that growth to double by 2035.
ICF’s report also predicts that unconventional oil plays output will sustain its growth.
The report indicates risks for bitumen production in Western Canada’s oil sands arising from delays in crude transport construction.
