Ohio Gas Facts

My periodic reminder that Ohio is a small player in natural gas production. As of July, 2015 we are ninth among the states, producing about three percent of the national total. Our oil production is less than one percent of the national total. This is not to deny that our progress has been impressive. 2014 saw our previous natural gas record from 1984 broken spectacularly by a factor of 2.6. To follow production go to: http://www.eia.gov/dnav/ng/NG_PROD_SUM_DC_SOH_MMCF_A.htm

We still import about half of the natural gas that we use. For consumption history go to: http://www.eia.gov/dnav/ng/ng_cons_sum_dcu_SOH_a.htm. Coal is similar; we produce a little more than half of what we consume. See: http://www.eia.gov/state/?sid=OH
