The EIA expects Bakken shale oil production to drop from 967,000 barrels per day in October to 946,000 bpd in November.

Bakken gas production is expected to decline by 23 million cubic feet per day to 1.626 billion cubic feet per day in November.

Shale oil production in the Eagle Ford play is projected to decline from 982,000 bpd in October to 947,000 bpd in November.

Shale gas production in the Eagle Ford is forecast to decline by 183 million cubic feet per day to 5.625 billion cubic feet per day in November.

The Haynesville play is expected to see oil production drop by 1,000 bpd in November.

Gas production in the Haynesville play is forecast to fall to 5.790 billion cubic feet per day in November, a 45 million cubic feet per day month-over-month decline.

Oil production in the Marcellus should hold steady at 38,000 bpd while gas production is forecast to decline to 18.193 billion cubic feet per day in November, down from 18.12 billion cubic feet per day in October.

Oil production in the Niobrara region is projected to fall by 3,000 barrels month-over-month to 374,000 bpd in November.

Niobrara gas production is projected to fall 48 million cubic feet per day to 4.094 billion cubic feet per day in November.

Shale oil production in the Utica play will hold steady at 69,000 bpd from October to November.

Utica gas production is projected to decline by 10 million cubic feet per day to 3.587 billion cubic feet per day in November.

Overall, shale oil production at the seven plays is expected to fall from 4.459 million bpd to 4.429 million bpd in November.

Total gas production at the seven plays is forecast to decline by 178 million cubic feet per day to 45.958 billion cubic feet per day in November.
