US production averaged 72.55 Bcf/d this week, an increase of 0.7 Bcf/d over last week. This week’s average was the strongest of 2016 with each day averaging over 72 Bcf/d. This week over week strengthening came mostly from the Northeast and Midcon Producing regions, which increased 0.5 Bcf/d and 0.2 Bcf/d, respectively. Some of this NE increase may be a result of the Leidy Southeast project's inservice this month, allowing additional incremental production. Canadian imports dropped off by 0.7 Bcf/d this week from last, mostly on a 0.6 Bcf/d decrease into the Northeast and 0.1 Bcf/d in the Pacific Northwest which offset a 0.2 Bcf/d increase in the Midwest. US demand fell to 84.1 Bcf/d this week, a drop of 11.7 Bcf/d from last week on drops across all sectors except for exports to Mexico. ResComm led this decline, which saw a week over week decrease of 8.3 Bcf/d with 5.1 Bcf/d of this coming from the Northeast and 1.3 Bcf/d coming from the Midcon Market.
