Potential Supply of Gas in the United States (April 2015)

Report March 26, 2015

The United States possesses a large and growing domestic abundance of natural gas. The biennial report, "Potential Supply of Natural Gas in the United States," developed by the Potential Gas Committee (PGC), details the nation's total technically recoverable resource base of natural gas, which provides the foundation for stable prices, customer savings, energy security and more.

The PGC's 50th Anniversary year-end 2014, report, released April 8, 2015, found that the United States possessesses a technically recoverable natural gas resource potential of 2,515 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). This is the highest resource evaluation in the PGC's history, and exceeds the previous record-high assessment from year-end 2012 by more than five percent.

When combined with EIA proved reserves estimates, the U.S. future supply of natural gas now exceeds 2,850 Tcfthe highest combined future supply of natural gas ever.
