Could we come out of the tight oil slowdown more productive than before?


Could we come out of the tight oil slowdown more productive than before?

Report summary

GoM exploration statistics prove that a slowdown can result in performance gains.  Today’s tight oil slowdown is poised to capitalise on this relationship, setting a foundation for tight oil metrics to outperform.

Description

Globally, the industry is looking for the next big unconventional discovery after the success seen in the U.S. Lower 48. Argentina's Vaca Muerta has shown it can go head to head with US plays. But, as investors looks for the next big unconventional opportunity, will Argentina be able to attract enough investment to exploit the shale's full potential?

This Vaca Muerta development study report provides ground-breaking well-by-well analysis of production, well performance, and economics. The play is divided into three distinct sub-plays and this report provides insight into production, acreage positions, costs, and type-well economics. The sub-plays likely to drive value creation are identified, as well as the oil and gas prices and efficiency gains needed to produce positive returns.

The study enables potential investors, governments and companies to evaluate the relative attractiveness and value of acreage positions. Furthermore, the study helps benchmark the performance of each Vaca Muerta sub-play with that of North American analogues.

These findings are based on original well data from Argentina along with Wood Mackenzie's expert analysis.
