Unconventional oil and gas production is a huge factor in the US. "Unconventionals" – which include shale gas, shale oil, and tight gas sands – accounted for over 8.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas production in 2011, more than 26 percent of the total US gas production. Six regions producing from unconventional reservoir sources accounted for nearly 90 percent of domestic oil production growth and virtually all domestic natural gas production during 2011-2012. Those regions are the Bakken in North Dakota; Eagle Ford in Texas; Permian in West Texas; Haynesville in East Texas and Louisiana; Marcellus in Pennsylvania and West Virginia; and the Niobrara in Northeastern Colorado, parts of Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas.
The October 2013 report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration offers some interesting production data for those regions. The Eagle Ford production rate was over one million barrels per day of oil and over four billion cubic feet per day of gas. The Bakken also had production of just over one million barrels per day of oil. The Marcellus had almost 13 billion cubic feet per day of gas production.
