What's on tap: placing a value on flowing production in the US Lower 48

What's on tap: placing a value on flowing production in the US Lower 48

Report summary

When operators scaled back capital investment over the last two years, oil and gas investors suddenly started paying more attention to quantifying the value of proved developed (PD) reserves. PD reserves are the hydrocarbons expected to be produced from existing wells only. With wells already in the ground and historical production serving as a basis for forecasting, PD reserves are the most certain of any future resource volume. We use our Global Economic Model (GEM) to analyze the value of this flowing production and screen for high value assets that operators may be looking to monetize.
