Report summary

The continued drive to discover economic drilling projects in the US has led to a renewed operational strategy for some producers drill the acreage where they own mineral rights as a form of competitive advantage against their peers. In this situation the E&P pays zero landowner royalty setting themselves up to generate superior returns to their offset peers.For example the removal of a 20% royalty reduces breakeven prices by between 17 and 23%. New company structures could emerge to capitalise on this.
