Global dry natural gas production in Q1 2017 grew to 328 Bcf/d, an increase of 1.6 Bcf/d compared to Q4 2016.  Africa and Russia-CIS are the main drivers of the increase. The two regions combined produced 1.5 Bcf/d more gas in Q1 2017 than in Q4 2016.  NGL production in the same period grew to 10.2 MMb/d, a small increase of about 20 Mb/d.

Looking forward, natural gas production in Q2 2017 will continue to grow globally by almost 4.5 Bcf/d, driven by North America, Russia-CIS and the Middle East. NGL will also add about 107 Mb/d, mostly from North America 100 Mb/d increase).

Q1 2017 saw one big project come on stream, West Nile Delta–Taurus/Libra in the Mediterranean Sea offshore Egypt (700 MMcf/d), and a couple of smaller gas projects: Deendayal West (200 MMcf/d) offshore India, Greater Stella in UK north sea (85 MMcf/d) and Thien Ung offshore Vietnam (90 MMcf/d).  However, the initial production of those projects in Q1 will add up to about 130 MMcf/d.

Looking ahead, several more projects are expected to come on stream in Q2 2017, including Chevron-operated Wheatstone (1500 MMcf/d); Woodside, operated by Julimar gas development (310 MMcf/d) offshore Australia: and Eni’s Jangkrik project offshore Indonesia (450 MMcf/d).  However, the combined production contribution of those 2017 Q2 starters will be less than 100 MMcf/d for the quarter.
