U.S. natural gas production will decline in 2024 while demand will rise to a record high, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in its Short-Term Energy Outlook on April 9.

EIA projected dry gas production will ease from a record 103.80 Bcf/d in 2023 to 103.58 Bcf/d in 2024 as several producers reduce drilling activities after gas prices fell to a 3-1/2-year low in February and March.

In 2025, EIA projected output would rise to 104.88 Bcf/d.

The agency also projected domestic gas consumption would rise from a record 89.09 Bcf/d in 2023 to 89.92 Bcf/d in 2024 before easing to 89.12 Bcf/d in 2025.
