Note(s): 1) State production includes offshore production in state waters, where applicable. 2) Marketed production equals gross withdrawals less gas used for repressuring, quantities vented and flared, and nonhydrocarbon gases removed in treating or processing operations. Includes all quantities of gas used in field and processing plant operations. 3) Natural gas production in Pennsylvania more than doubled between 2009 and 2010 as a result the significant development of the Marcellus shale formation.
