U.S. LNG exports are key to balancing the U.S. natural gas market, according to Bernadette Johnson, vice president, market intelligence, for Drillinginfo Inc.

“Natural gas production continues to reach record levels,” she told attendees at Hart Energy’s recently held DUG Haynesville conference and exhibition. Dry-gas production through year-end 2018 was 24.6 Bcf/d more than in 2010, according to Drillinginfo data.
