2013 US Lower 48 West Coast year in review

2013 US Lower 48 West Coast year in review

Report summary

The Monterey Shale remains the headline play across California, but lead operators Occidental and Chevron tempered their Monterey development plans in 2013 in favour of pursuing higher-returning plays elsewhere in the Lower 48. North Dakota crude railed into California increased 90% year-on-year, and although it remains a trickle compared to overall Bakken crude-by-rail volumes, the delivery of the first unit train of Bakken crude in September is a harbinger of greater volumes to come.
