MichPSC - Mich Nat Gas Prod by year

Michigan Natural Gas Production

Michigan's natural gas production volumes in Bcf (billion cubic feet) for the period 1989 through 2012. Production volumes are reported at a dry pressure base of 14.73 psia and 60 degrees F and represent sales volumes (after treatment) and not wellhead volumes.

Year Antrim PdC Dry Gas Casinghead Total (BCF)

The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) receives monthly production volumes from operators and transmitters for Michigan's natural gas wells. The MPSC has jurisdiction over the production from gas wells only. The Office of Geological Survey in the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has jurisdiction over the production from oil wells (although the casinghead gas production from oil fields is reported to the MPSC).

 
Data Source: Computerized Production Records of MPSC, except for 1989-1990 Antrim and 1989-1995 Dry and Casinghead.
shim  38.0  Antrim 1989-1990 volumes shown represent the most accurate estimate of the annual Antrim production for these years. These volumes will not correlate with the web postings (see monthly production data) for this time frame. shim
 
   20.3  Dry and Casinghead 1989-1995 volumes shown represent a manual tally of the production. Historical production is still being added to the computer database, so web postings (see monthly production data) for year end production will not correspond to these volumes and will be smaller.  
 

Key to Production Types
Antrim Gas produced from the Antrim shale formation. The Antrim formation is a shallow gas producing reservoir which is productive across the northern part of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Some Antrim projects produce gas with CO2 levels as high as 30%.
Casinghead Gas produced from oil wells.
Dry Gas Gas produced primarily from the Niagaran reef formation. Production occurs over two trends of reefs in the lower peninsula of Michigan. The trends are commonly referred to as the Northern Trend and the Southern Trend.
PdC Gas produced from the Prairie du Chien (PdC) sandstone formation. The PdC is the deepest gas producing formation in Michigan and is productive over the central portion of the lower peninsula of Michigan.

 


Production reported above are verified summaries of monthly production data reported to the MPSC. Annual production figures used in MPSC Annual Report and Energy Appraisal are sometimes preliminary data, and therefore may differ from actuals above.
