The next largest basin, the Eagle Ford, is expected to fall by 36,000 bpd in June, to 1.174 million bpd. There are losses expected in all seven basins on the EIA list.
Gas production is expected to see across-the-board losses, too, with the EIA predicting a loss of 22 million cubic meters per day. For gas production, the EIA is expecting that Anadarko will see the largest drop of 7 million cubic meters per day to 185,000.
