TXOGA Comment on Recent Cold Snap’s Impact on Production in Permian

January 4, 2022

The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil and Gas Association:

“As we have consistently stated, some variation in production occurs with sudden temperature changes – these are field operations, not controlled factory settings. Reports indicated Texas produced more than 20 BCF of natural gas during the recent cold snap. This, in addition to the 544 BCF of natural gas working storage capacity, provides access to far more product than the typical 4 BCF needed daily for electricity generation in Texas. Typical fluctuations are expected and all reports we have seen seem to be within expected operating ranges when looking at the largest gas producing state in the nation.”
