Texas-based Powell Shale Digest offers a new one-page summary of production and well data for nine major United States natural gas and crude oil regions.
The summary does not include Ohio's Utica shale.
But it does cover the Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
To date, there are nearly 36,000 wells with total production of nearly 23 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 682 million barrels of oil and condensate from the Barnett, Fayetteville, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, Bakken and Marcellus shales.
The volume of natural gas and the barrels of oil were estimates since production began in each of the shale areas.
The numbers came largely from state regulatory agencies.
The question about the total U.S. shale production came from a French newspaper in Paris.
