Profit through Efficiency

Reducing cost and adding takeaway

While the world seeks a new equilibrium for tumbling oil prices, producers throughout the Rockies are laser focused on cutting costs by operating more efficiently. Everything from optimized completion strategies and streamlined logistics, to new frac spacing methods and fuel substitution is being tested. And with more than 9,000 wells drilled in the Bakken alone, producers have a wealth of data and experience from which to learn and improve.

A lack of takeaway capacity is further exacerbating the effects of declining oil prices. Producers in the Rockies sell at substantially discounted rates to make up for the region's logistical and geographic disadvantages. According to the EIA Bakken production is currently 1.2 MMbbl/d. At the end of 2013, North Dakota only had pipeline capacity to move 583,000 MMbbl/d out of the state. That number is forecast to increase to 1.7 MMbbl/d by the end of 2017, bringing relief to producers working diligently to stay ahead of narrowing profit margins.

The resilience of North America's shale revolution is being tested, but the very innovative spirit that started it all is keeping producers ahead.

DUG Bakken and Niobrara 2015 will unite more than 2,500 oil and gas professionals, 25+ executive-level speakers and 200+ exhibitors in Denver for two days of candid discussions on how producers are cutting costs by operating more efficiently.

Marcellus, Utica Pipeline Interest Up For Sale
Liquidity is getting tight at Magnum Hunter Resources Corp. (NYSE: MHR) but the company is making moves to generate cash, including a sale of interest in the Eureka Hunter Pipeline System and setting up a joint venture (JV). The company’s 2015 capex remains frozen, with MHR spending money to mop up 2014 projects. Gary Evans, CEO, has said he intends to wait for service costs to drop by 40% before he restarts drilling. During the lull, the company is looking to generate liquidity. It also provided updates on its Utica wells and an additional deal for Ohio land during its yearend earnings call.
