Natural gas supplies are expected to be adequate to meet current consumption levels under all likely gas price scenarios throughout the period 1987-2010. At a maximum, potential supply capability could increase to 30% over peak U.S. consumption levels experienced in the early 1970s.

These gas supply estimates include the domestic lower-48 sources which consist of conventional gas production, gas from tight formations, coal seam gas and gas from co- production of gas and brine. These potential supply capability estimates have been developed without regard to specific gas demand constraints.
