The relative availability and cost of finding and producing natural gas fields of varying size, located in regions of the United States at various depth intervals, are examined under different economic assumptions. First, historical trends related to the discovery and availability of natural gas are identified and discussed. These include trends in drilling activity, reserves production, and field-size distributions. Exploration, drilling, and production costs are presented and analyzed. This information is integrated, along with other data, as part of an economic evaluation of the natural gas discovery and production process in the United States. Finally, possible future discoveries of natural gas are projected based on varying assumptions related to the underlying distr bution of natural gas resources.
