  • IntroductionU.S. Upstream AlmanacJanuary 2011
  • Introduction Key ThemesOil Plays Are Being Targeted1 As the oil price/gas price 26.00x 8.0 80% ratio has climbed from 8x to nearly 26x, drillers have progressively 7.0 focused more efforts to 6.4 6.5 oil-rich plays 6.3 6.1 21.00x 6.0 5.7 70% The graph at right 5.5 compares: Total oil and gas wells % Gas of Total Wells Drilled 4.7 drilled (blue/gray 4.6 Oil Price / Gas Price 4.5 Wells Drilled (000s) bars) The percentage of 16.00x 4.0 3.9 3.9 60% wells drilled targeting 3.6 gas (red line) 3.3 3.1 The oil/gas price ratio 2.9 (blue line) Gas plays are clearly 11.00x 2.0 50% losing favor as gas wells have dropped from ~75% of total wells drilled in Q1 2007 to ~45% in Q4 2010 6.00x 0.0 40% 2007 Q1 2007 Q2 2007 Q3 2007 Q4 2008 Q1 2008 Q2 2008 Q3 2008 Q4 2009 Q1 2009 Q2 2009 Q3 2009 Q4 2010 Q1 2010 Q2 2010 Q3 2010 Q4 Gas Wells Drilled Oil Wells Drilled % Gas Wells Oil Price / Gas Price ________________________________________ U.S. Upstream Almanac 1. Wells drilled are based on permits "At Total Depth" with timing based on permit granted date. Only wells classified as "Oil", "Gas" or 4 "CBM" are included (i.e., well types including Injection, CO2, Oil & Gas, Unclassified, etc. were excluded) January 2011
  • Introduction Key Themes (contd)Horizontal Wells Are Increasing1 9,000 90% As horizontal drilling 8,149 8,121 techniques are refined 8,049 7,950 and optimized, an 7,559 7,413 increasing proportion of 7,351 7,151 wells drilled are utilizing 6,988 6,840 this technology 6,643 Since Q1 2006, horizontal wells have increased from 6,000 60% 9% of total wells drilled to 5,034 34% Q4 2010 4,493 Wells Drilled 4,331 % of Total In the same time period, 4,040 vertical wells have 3,631 dropped from 81% of 3,351 3,275 3,139 total wells drilled to 57% 2,891 3,000 30% 2,458 2,289 2,143 2,122 2,093 1,986 1,932 1,765 1,758 1,650 1,616 1,521 1,408 1,323 1,320 1,201 1,102 1,041 1,008 903 0 0% 2006 Q1 2006 Q2 2006 Q3 2006 Q4 2007 Q1 2007 Q2 2007 Q3 2007 Q4 2008 Q1 2008 Q2 2008 Q3 2008 Q4 2009 Q1 2009 Q2 2009 Q3 2009 Q4 2010 Q1 2010 Q2 2010 Q3 2010 Q4 Horizontal Vertical % Horizontal % Vertical ________________________________________ U.S. Upstream Almanac 1.

  • Introduction Presentation GuideOrganization & Flow Standard Slides Integral Advisors US Upstream Almanac is a comprehensive Introduction Slide analysis of drilling and permitting data, providing key insights that Key information oil & gas professionals find useful Top producers and permitters The Almanac is organized in order of increased detail, beginning Well & permit activity map with the Continental United States, followed by Regions, and ending with Basins. Integral worked with our data provider HPDI, LLC (www.hpdi.com) to parse production and permitting data out into 54 specific basins, Vintaged Rate & Well Additions which Integral has further grouped in 12 regions Production and well additions by year since 2001 There are two key data sets in the Almanac: Data parsed by gas, oil and total Historical Activity: Historical production and well additions are equivalent broken out by oil and gas, and top operators are ranked over the last twelve month ("LTM") time period Future Activity: Permitting activity is broken out by operator Quarterly Permits and targeted formation Top formations permitted over last 5 years Continental United States Shown quarterly on graph, with annual data below Regions (12) (Rockies, Alaska, Offshore GoM, etc.) Tabular Data Basins (54) Top producers and permitters shown (Green River, DJ, for last twelve months ("LTM") Sacramento, etc.) U.S. Upstream Almanac January 2011 8
