U.S. Oil and Natural Gas Wells by Production Rate

Dec 20, 2019
The share of horizontal wells over the past decade increased from 3% to 14% (2008–2018). As a result, most U.S. oil and natural gas production comes from wells producing over 100 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/d). Meanwhile, the share of U.S. oil and natural gas wells producing less than 15 BOE/d has remained surprisingly steady at 80% from 2000 through 2018.

U.S. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Proved Reserves, Year-end 2018

Dec 13, 2019
Year-over-year increases in U.S. proved reserves resulted in record-high levels of crude oil and lease condensate, up 12%, and natural gas up 9% in 2018, according to the U.S. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Proved Reserves, Year-End 2018 report. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) published its annual reserves report today, based on data reported on the survey Form EIA-23L,Annual Report of Domestic Oil and Gas Reserves, which highlighted the new records for reserves.

Alternative industrial sector outcomes in India

Dec 12, 2019
In the International Energy Outlook 2019, India has the world’s fastest-growing population and the fastest-growing gross domestic product (GDP), which means long-term energy consumption projections are uncertain because of the rapid change magnified by the size of the economy. This discussion explores two aspects of uncertainty about India’s future energy consumption: assumptions about economic composition and industrial sector energy intensity.

Short-Term Energy Outlook

Dec 10, 2019
Brent crude oil spot prices averaged $63 per barrel (b) in November, up $3/b from October. EIA forecasts Brent spot prices will average $61/b in 2020, down from a 2019 average of $64/b. EIA forecasts that West Texas Intermediate (WTI) prices will average $5.50/b less than Brent prices in 2020. EIA expects crude oil prices will be lower on average in 2020 than in 2019 because of forecast rising global oil inventories, particularly in the first half of next year.

Weekly net change in working gas stocks exceeds five-year average for first time this heating season

Dec 3, 2019
Last week (week ending November 22, 2019), the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) estimated weekly net withdrawals from working natural gas stocks at underground storage facilities in the Lower 48 states exceeded the five-year average for the first time in three weeks. The heating season traditionally begins on November 1. Total net withdrawals were just 28 billion cubic feet (Bcf) compared with the five-year average for the report week of 57 Bcf. The deficit to the five-year average stocks for this time of year narrowed to about 1% of the five-year average as a result of this relatively low net withdrawal.

U.S. crude oil production efficiency continues year-over-year improvements

first month oil production per new well in select DPR regions
Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Drilling Productivity Report (DPR)

U.S. oil production from tight formations increased in 2019, accounting for 64% of total U.S. crude oil production. This share grew because of the increasing productivity of new wells that were brought online during 2019. Since 2007, the average first full month of oil production from new wells in regions tracked by the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) Drilling Productivity Report (DPR) has increased. The growing initial production rates have helped oil production from tight formations to increase despite the slowdowns in drilling activity when oil prices fell between 2015 and 2016. Since 2017, recovering oil prices and more efficient production from new wells have helped producers cover costs of drilling, production, and the development of new technologies.
