Crude oil production in the U.S.’s seven most productive basins/plays is projected to climb 74,000 barrels per day from September to October, the Energy Information Administration reported in the September Drilling Productivity Report (DPR).
Total crude production from the seven regions will climb more than 8.84 million barrels per day (Mmbpd), the DPR reveals, up from 8.78 Mmbpd in the current month, Kallanish Energy reports. (All numbers are rounded.)
Four of the seven basins/plays are expected to record a production increase from September to October, two will see a decrease in production, and one region, the Haynesville Shale play, will remain flat, at 42,000 Bpd of crude.

|Anadarko||558,000 barrels per day||549,000 Bpd||(96,000 barrels per day)|
|Appalachia||151,000 Bpd||155,000 Bpd||196,000 Bpd|
|Bakken||1.47 million barrels per day||1.47 million barrels per day||3,000 Bpd|
|Eagle Ford||1.38 Mmbpd||1.37 Mmbpd||(18,000 Bpd)|

The biggest month-to-month increase is expected in the Permian Basin, projected to experience a 71,000 Bpd September-to-October rise in crude production, to a total of 4.49 Mmbpd, from 4.41 Mmbpd.
The Niobrara is projected to see its crude production rise by 12,000 Bpd, to 767,000 Bpd, from 755,000 Bpd.
The biggest month-to-month drop is projected for the Anadarko Basin, expected to see production from September to October fall by 9,000 Bpd, to 549,000 Bpd from 558,000 Bpd, the DPR projects.
The other basins/plays included in the monthly DPR include Appalachia (the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays, up 4,000 Bpd, to 155,000 Bpd), and the Bakken (up 2,000 Bpd, to 1.47 Mmbpd).
The Eagle Ford Shale play is projected to see its crude oil production from September to October fall by 6,000 Bpd, to 1.37 Mmbpd, according to the latest DPR.
