Maine is the first state in the nation to reach the 50 million metric ton threshold to become a natural gas producer.
The state reached that milestone in April 2018 with a natural-gas pipeline, a milestone which has allowed the state to boost its natural gas production from 7.3 million to almost 10 million metric tons per year.
The pipeline connects the Marcellus Shale region, which has produced more than 30 percent of the U.S. natural gas, to the U-Bahn in New York City.
It’s also an important milestone for the state’s economy, which is dependent on the natural gas industry for more than $5 billion in annual economic activity.
The gas boom in Maine is part of a larger trend across the country.
In April 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said the U.-Bahn, the country’s largest passenger rail service, added 1,400 jobs, and the New York Stock Exchange reported that the region has added nearly 200,000 jobs since April 2017.
Natural gas production is also expected to continue to increase over the next five years.
In addition to the pipeline, the state has also been building the Eastland pipeline.
This is the largest natural gas pipeline in the U., connecting the Maricopa County town of Mariconda to the East Coast and is slated to be finished by 2025.
The Eastland project, which will carry more than 10 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, will run under Interstate 5 in Arizona, across Arizona, through New Mexico and into New York state.
This pipeline, however, is not expected to be completed until 2025.
Additionally, the pipeline will also connect the Marcy-Meadow, New York, region to the Northeast and Ohio and Illinois regions.
In 2016, the UBS Global Energy Outlook projected that natural gas demand in the Northeast would rise from 1.3 billion cubic feet per day to 5.2 billion cubic yards per day by 2025, up from 2.4 billion cubic meters per day currently.
The region’s population will grow by more than 5 percent, from 3.2 million people to 3.6 million people by 2025 and the region’s economic output will increase by an average of about $3 billion per year, according to the study.
“Natural gas production has become a key part of Maine’s economy and a driver of our economic growth,” said State Sen. Chris Larsen, who introduced the bill to increase natural gas.
“This bill is an important step to helping our economy and the jobs it provides.
It will also help us address climate change and help ensure the future of Maine.
This will be a positive step for our economy.”
The bill passed the Senate unanimously on April 24 and has now been sent to Gov.
Paul LePage, who is expected to sign it.
As of Tuesday, the bill was signed into law by Maine Gov. LePage.
