Operated natural gas volume throughput averaged 1,441 million cubic feet per day and liquids volume throughput averaged 63 thousand barrels per day. Operated natural gas volumes increased 7.1 percent relative to the first quarter of 2021, largely due to continued strong performance from the four Utica Shale wells connected in the first quarter of 2021 and 20 new wells that were turned inline during the second quarter of 2021 across the Utica Shale, Williston Basin and Marcellus Shale segments. Quarterly liquids volume throughput decreased by 3.1 percent relative to the first quarter of 2021, primarily as a result of natural production declines.
