Mid-Continent region overview

Mid-Continent region overview

Report summary

The Mid-Continent is home to a mulitiplicity of tight plays in the US Lower 48: STACK, SCOOP, Granite Wash, Cleveland, Hoxbar, Marmaton, Fayetteville and Arkoma Woodford. Within the Mid-Continent, the SCOOP play will contribute the majority of regional production growth in the next five years. Although the Mid-Continent in areas boasts some of the best economics in Lower 48, these areas are limited in running room compared to other regions and therefore will not have a large impact on L48 production or capital spend. This Upstream Summary report provides an overview of the key upstream issues and trends across the Mid-Continent region. It offers a detailed description of reserves, production, economics, infrastructure and fiscal terms for the Mid-Continent region and individual basins.
