Kansas produces substantial quantities of natural gas, although marketed production has declined overall since 1995. Natural gas reserves contained within coal seams in the eastern part of the state are estimated to be more than 180 billion cubic feet.
Nine natural gas interstate pipelines cross Kansas. Many of them converge on the Mid-Continent Center in Wichita, a key natural gas supply hub that merges production from several states in the region before piping it east toward major consumption markets.
In 2013, Kansas ranked 10th in crude oil production among the 50 states (excluding the federal offshore areas), and its output represented almost 2% of total U.S. production.
