The 2018-19 winter withdrawal season was formidable, with demand for natural gas establishing a new all-time record average near 102 Bcf/d. Both domestic demand and export demand are at their highest levels in history, which has left the North American natural gas market facing an overwhelming deficit in storage inventories. At the same time, supply of natural gas is setting daily and weekly records and for the first time passed 100 Bcf/d in wellhead production during the last week of March. Are these production levels sustainable and can production lift the North American natural gas market out of the hole it has dug for itself?
