Coming Next Month

March 2018

The recent hikes in the U.S. rig count shows the unbridled enthusiasm of America’s independent producers. While many publicly held companies are being careful to maintain operations within cash flows, the rising tide of industry economic conditions is lifting all boats. With global demand growth in sight, and U.S. crude oil and LNG exports in their infancy, equipment manufacturers and service firms can count on thousands of equity-infused and privately-owned companies to power on!

Permian Powerhouse
There is only one Permian Basin–the benchmark by which all other basins are measured. The March issue delves into the drilling and completion activities on the calendar at RSP Permian, EnCana, Element Petroleum, Oxy, Throne Petroleum and other leading players in the Midland and Delaware sub-basins. Razor-edge geophysics, geosteering and completion technologies are going full circle. After being honed in Permian megapads, they are making waves throughout the nation’s resource plays.

New-Era Frac Fleets
It’s not only the toll that 24/7/365 operations have taken on legacy frac fleets, lessons learned in shale plays are reaping untold rewards for both operators and service firms. The latest solutions for improving the performance and longevity of well fracturing equipment–including a new generation of “leaner, greener and meaner” pumps and high-horsepower engines–are being driven by professionals who also know how to make the most of field fuel options, water chemistry, and lateral productivity.

Advancing Shale Science, Part III
One of the focal points for achieving optimum EURs is selecting the proper landing zone and maintaining the targeted interval. March reveals Parsley Energy’s cutting-edge approach to integrating 3-D seismic and well data to precisely geosteer long laterals in the stacked stratigraphy of the southern Delaware Basin, with its multiple-zone pays. Reports also examine basin-scale modeling, and the latest pad automation and remote monitoring capabilities.

Production, Processing & Infrastructure
Multiphase oil with associated gas and liquids presents both challenges and opportunities. The trifecta strategy includes knowing the reservoir while engineering surface separation and compression facilities to optimize all three income streams. The March issue reveals how a leading Marcellus/Utica operator puts it all together by deploying small-scale LNG plants and wellsite power generation, while its real-time operational planning and midstream logistics work hand-in-glove to take more revenue to the bottom line.
