Permian Basin in the US, 2019 - Oil and Gas Shale Market Analysis and Outlook to 2023

Permian production continues to be the engine growth for US onshore hydrocarbon production. Production of crude oil and natural gas has grown each year from 2013–2018 despite the oil and gas industry going through one of the worst downturns during that period. As in other unconventional shale plays, operators in the Permian Basin continue to drill longer laterals beyond 9,000 feet and some reaching as much as 3 miles. The general objective remains to increase the productivity of the new producing wells in a higher proportion with respect to the cost increase associated with these more complex wells. The Permian has also seen a clear trend for larger scale operations of key operators that increases the surface of continuous acreage and allows for more recovery. This has also driven the M&A activity in the Permian with companies like Chevron, Diamondback Energy, and Concho Resources looking to expand their Permian footprint to drive greater efficiency and lower production cost. The limitations to gas pipeline capacity that gave rise to flaring is also expected to ease during 2019–2020, with approximately 4 billion cubic feet of pipeline capacity expected to be added during these two years, giving further lift to Permian production.
