Very little has changed in Gulf of Mexico oil and gas output two days after Hurricane Ida made landfall at Port Fourchon, Louisiana. An estimated 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of associated gas production remained shut in Tuesday afternoon, as well as 1.7 million barrels of oil -- 94.47% and 93.69% of Gulf production, respectively. However, US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement data indicates progress is being made re-crewing infrastructure. BSEE reported Tuesday that 278 platforms remain crewless, down from the 288 reported on Monday; nine stationary rigs are waiting on crews, down from 11 on Monday and four of the Gulf's dynamically positioned drilling rigs remain offsite. * * * The latest US Energy Information Administration 914 Production Report shows that gross gas output from the Lower 48 and federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico grew 5.3% year over year in June to 104.143 Bcf/d. That's up 60 million cubic feet per day from May. Texas remains the largest producing state at 28.9 Bcf/d followed by Pennsylvania at 20.8 Bcf/d. * * * US energy production has become increasingly concentrated in six states -- Texas, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, Oklahoma, West Virginia and North Dakota, according to an analysis by the EIA. By 2019 , those states were producing 55% of the nation’s energy output, up from 39% in 2000. Primary energy production in the US also grew 40% from 2009-19 driven largely by increased crude oil and natural gas production in Texas, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and North Dakota. Marketed production of natural gas grew 76% in the US between 2009 and 2019. Texas, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma accounted for 53% of the nation’s natural gas production in 2019.
