December 13, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects U.S. natural gas production in 2022 to set an annual record, averaging 98 billion cubic feet per day, with a further 2% growth projected for 2023. As more of this product arrives at gas-fired power plants, those facilities will need proper maintenance to maintain maximum efficiency. Industrial Info is tracking more than 150 maintenance-related projects at U.S. gas-fired power plants, valued at about $790 million in total, that are set to kick off in the first quarter. Texas leads all other states in first-quarter maintenance projects at gas-fired power plants, accounting for almost 20% of the total nationwide spending. Companies with projects set to kick off include <a href='https://www.tenaska.com/' target='_blank'>Tenaska Incorporated</a>, <a href='https://www.southerncompany.com/' target='_blank'>Southern Company</a> (<a href='https://www.nyse.com/quote/XNYS:SO' target='_blank'>NYSE:SO</a>) and <a href='https://vistracorp.com/' target='_blank'>Vistra Energy Corporation</a> (<a href='https://www.nyse.com/quote/XNYS:VST' target='_blank'>NYSE:VST</a>).
