Natural Gas--Supply, Consumption, Reserves, and Marketed Production: 1970 to 2005

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 880):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467

  1. Estimated, end of year. Source: 1970-1976; American Gas Association,
    Arlington, VA (copyright.); thereafter,
    U.S. Energy Information Administration,
    U.S. Crude Oil, Natural Gas, and Natural Gas Liquids Reserves, annual.
  2. Marketed production includes gross withdrawals from reservoirs less
    quantities used for reservoir repressuring and quantities vented or
    flared. For 1980 and thereafter,
    excludes the nonhydrocarbon gases subsequently removed.
  3. Volumetric reduction in natural gas resulting from the removal of
    natural gas plant liquids, which are transferred to petroleum supply.
  4. Quantities lost and imbalances in data due to differences among data sources. Since 1980, excludes
    intransit shipments that cross U.S.-Canada border (I.e., natural gas delivered to its destination via the other
  5. Underground storage. For 1980-2004, includes liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage in above-ground tanks.
  6. Includes deliveries to municipalities and public authorities for
    institutional heating and other purposes.
