Top H1 2022 Permian Producers12/22/2022
The year 2022 brought new opportunities to the U.S. economy in different domains that were not perfectly developed. Oil and natural gas production facilitated economic growth, especially in the Permian Basin.
Compared with other U.S. basins, the Permian Basin derives benefits from lower operational costs, better access to oilfield services, and its proximity to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries and export facilities. Core areas of the Permian Basin, and its Delaware and Midland subbasins, consist of multiple stacked shale formations.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), oil output in the Permian in Texas and New Mexico, the biggest U.S. shale oil basin, is predicted to grow by almost 50,000 barrels per day (bpd) to a record 5.453 million bpd in November.
In 2022 the total production is 1.6 billion MCF for gas and 507 million BBL for oil. Furthermore, the monthly average production in Permian Basin is 4,236 MCF for gas and 1,127 BBL for oil. The list of the top 5 Permian producers is the following: Pioneer, Windsor, EDG, OXY, and ExxonMobil.
For the time being, OXY has the most significant number of wells (10,388) that are delivering steady production to domestic and foreign customers. Other top producers operate roughly twice as fewer wells (4,000-6000).
In 2023 it is anticipated strong production growth from the Permian basin, generating first-half 2022 average crude oil production of 5.02 million b/d, a growth of 13.6% year-over-year. Constant supply chain bottlenecks, shortages of qualified personnel, and a fluctuating drilled-but-uncompleted (DUC) well inventory could dampen overall expectations, but the play concentrates on many US shale operators.

Permian Basins gas infrastructure boom: Summit Midstream puts into service a new pipeline system, aimed at reducing gas flaring in the area. Besides ecological concerns, the project will also transport almost 1,5 billion cubic feet of gas per day — enough to supply 5 million U.S. homes every day. According to Federal Energy Statistics, the project cost a whopping $450 million.
No sooner had the crude prices soared above $100/bbl than the industry professionals believed in an incredible growth of drilling activity in North America’s largest shale patch. Analysts speculate that additional output of 500,000 barrels of oil daily would become a significant part (4%) of overall U.S. daily production. That is going to flatter oil and gasoline prices. Drilling permits in the Permian Basin are persistently growing, averaging approximately 210 at the beginning of April. Moreover, the permits trend is noticed as an all-time high as a total of 904 horizontal drilling permits were awarded last month. Nowadays, learning and analysing the current situation and predicting the future development become easier with early activity tracking, a new service recently launched by Rextag. Rextag's Pad Activity monitor (PAM) allows you to see well pad clearing, drilling operations, fracking crew deployment and completions with new data collected approximately every 2 days with the help of satellite imagery and artificial intelligence. While the increase in drilling will result in higher production, U.S. shale producers will have to overcome several hurdles including labor shortages and supply constraints.
In order to sell its part of the sprawling Eagle Ford Shale acreage, Chesapeake Energy Corp. on January 18 concluded an agreement to trade its Brazos Valley region assets to WildFire Energy I LLC for $1.425 billion.
On January 6, Phillips 66 announced that it plans to acquire more than 43% of DCP Midstream LP for $3.8 billion, expanding the business in the oil & gas business.
On January 5 Northern Oil & Gas (NOG) concluded a deal to acquire working interests in Midland-Petro D.C. Partners LLC (MPDC)'s Mascot Project in the Midland Basin, according to a January 9 press release. Firstly estimated at $330 million in cash, the deal was signed with an additional 3.25% working interest added to the 36.7% agreed upon when the transaction was announced on October 19. NOG paid $29 million more for the additional interests, which now totalled 39.958%. Finally, the deal closed for $320 million in cash and $43 million in debt at signing in October with the finance of Minnetonka, Minn.-based NOG with cash on hand, operating free cash flow, and assistance from its revolving credit facility.
