Utah Sets Natural Gas Production Records in 2007

Natural gas drillers last year set a production record in Utah. Drillers produced more than 385 billion cubic feet of natural gas. That was up 12 percent over 2006.
The Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining attributes the increase to markedly higher drilling. There were nearly 4,700 wells producing gas.
Uintah County was the state's largest producer of natural gas, followed by Emery, San Juan and Summit counties.
Oil production, once in decline, rebounded to more than 19 million barrels - the highest since 1997 but still below the record of 41 million barrels. Duchesne County is the state's biggest oil producer.
