Coming Next Month

June 2017

Are there omens that portend better business for those who understand fundamental industry changes, recognize growth patterns, and are quick to adopt intelligent marketing? In light of Friday’s Permian Basin-weighted rig count increase, and the June AOGR special reports on Artificial Lift, Permian Basin Activity, Offshore & Subsea Technology, and “simply-wow” ways in which independents are drilling and fracturing wells along the Rocky Mountain foothills, the answer is a resounding yes!

Artificial Lift Technology
Discovery Natural Resources and Denbury Resources exemplify how independent operators are synonymous with taking the right steps at the right time, whether it’s strategic acquisitions or adopting state-of-the-art technology. The June special reports open with a case study of leveraging automation and remote monitoring to maximize artificial lift run times in horizontal Permian Basin Wolfcamp wells, and move on to how “big data” analytics, liquid-assisted gas lift technology for multiphase wells, and next-generation production chemistry are helping operators enhance production.

Permian Basin Activity
Every operator and service entity in the nation has a vested interest in the vast Permian. Different shapes and sizes of operators, and a variety of geologic formations, make the Permian the nation’s perfect testing and proving grounds! June profiles the likes of Apache, Noble and Pioneer, while showing how companies such as Earthstone, Diamondback and Torchlight are ushering in new insights into stacked pays in the Permian and throughout the nation. It’s all good, including the quarterly record of 20 Permian A&D deals valued at $21 billion announced in the first quarter, proof positive of the way forward.

Offshore & Subsea
Taking a page from penny- and pound-wise independents in onshore and offshore projects, companies as large as Shell Oil are adopting new paradigms to exploit lucrative Lower Tertiary fields such as the Stones ultradeepwater megaproject in 9,500 feet of water–the world’s deepest producing field. The Offshore & Subsea special reports assess game-changing concepts in subsea processing and compression, while giving the industry an inside look at how high-resolution broadband seismic is resolving even the most complex subsurface horizons in the Gulf.

HS&E Best Practices
In the midst of Colorado’s Denver-Julesburg Basin, innovative independents are forging new alliances and re-inventing the way pad drilling and simultaneous well fracturing and production take place with visual and noise levels in sync with neighboring farms and suburban areas. June reveals how operators are developing high-density pads with 14 or more horizontal wells and on-demand production infrastructure in concert with the environment, while studying industry-first water management capabilities.
