Massachusetts does not produce any natural gas, but the state consumes half of the natural gas used in the New England Grid region. Nearly 50% of Massachusetts households use natural gas as their primary energy source for home heating.
All three of the New England Grid's liquid natural gas import terminals are located in Massachusetts, although only one—the Everett Distrigas terminal—is actively used due to the surge in natural gas from US domestic sources, which flows into the region via pipeline.
