The impact of lower reinvestment rates on tight oil supply

Report summary

Stakeholders have demanded tight oil players cap reinvestment rates at 70% to reduce leverage, generate consistent free cash flow and increase shareholder distributions. But as operators show capital restraint, the looming macro question is what impact will less capex spend have on supply? We used Lens Valuation to model production scenarios holding prices flat and constraining activity by reinvestment rate to understand how stakeholder demands influence tight oil growth potential. What we found was that lower reinvestment doesn’t mean tight oil can’t grow. However, there’s a key tradeoff in pursuing growth and generating excess free cash.
