The very first Drilling Productivity Report (DRP) issued by the U.S. Energy Information Administation. The report, using charts and graphs, shows how efficient (or not) rigs are at drilling, and how productive (or not) wells are, by region/shale play. Among the very important metrics tracked is the decline rate of newly drilled wells–how quickly the gas and oil flowing out of shale wells peters out. This first report shows the Marcellus Shale has (astonishingly) hit 12 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas production.
