Going Strong: North American Unconventional Plays and Players

  1. 1. Going Strong: North American Unconventional Plays and Players September 18, 2013 2:15 – 3:45 p.m. Andrew Byrne, Director IHS Dan Pratt, Managing Director, IHS What is the status of the key unconventional plays and which companies have the most to gain? The unconventional revolution has transformed the North American upstream from a mature industry into a high growth region offering abundant, repeatable high return drilling prospects. Technological advancements offer the promise of continued improvements in well performance within established plays like the Bakken and aiding in the emergence of new plays like the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale. This radical transformation of the North American upstream business is creating a new set of industry leading companies that have the knowledge and courage to profit from drilling these new plays. Key Takeaways Largely seen as a maturing play, not all key operators in the Bakken play are experiencing declining well performance. Drilling deeper vertical wells in the Midland Basin is resulting in improving well performance. While well performance in the Utica oil window has been disappointing, the sweet spot in the Wet Gas window continues to grow. Success in the oil window sets the Eagle Ford apart but not all players are winners. Well performance in the Marcellus continues to improve with Cabot Oil and Gas leading the way the northeast Pennsylvania sub-play. The Duvernay, in Canada, offers the potential to be the next big play. Tuscaloosa Marine Shale is now one of the most intriguing emerging oil rich plays due to drilling success with a new drilling and completion design. We have considered the environment in our production of materials for this event.
