Natural gas exports will grow significantly in 2019. The massive production flowing from Appalachian reservoirs drives this growth. DUG East speakers will discuss production outlooks and CAPEX plans for the Marcellus and Utica region.

NGL production is projected to see strong growth and southwestern Pennsylvania’s wet-gas reservoirs will feed much of that growth. The Shell cracker project is a key step toward a regional petrochemical industry that could spur economic prosperity in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio.

Major pipeline projects are alleviating bottlenecks in the Appalachian Basin. The region is steadily improving its connectivity and operators are benefiting from multiple options to reach more markets.

Well performance has steadily improved over the years, driven by enhanced completions.

Operators are looking at every facet of their businesses to improve efficiencies and economics, from increased proppant intensities to fresh approaches to sand sourcing.
