Report summary

After spending a week in New York City and San Francisco, our research team gained a better appreciation for just how many investors are increasingly focused on tight oil activity outside of the Permian.Since Winter NAPE 2017 we have emphasised the Lower 48 recovery is multi-basin; tight oil growth opportunities are present in numerous plays outside the Permian. Rig activity, as well as the anticipated budget increases, support our thesis. In this short note, we highlight the questions our clients are asking and provide a concise view on the material events that have driven our modelling changes the past few months.
