What's Working, What's Not & What's Next for Permian Producers

At ~$40 WTI, West Texas' Permian could very well be the last basin standing. With superior wellhead economics and a deep bench of productive formations, the Permian Basin has become a safe haven for many E&Ps. But even the nation's most prolific oil province is challenged by the current downturn. Armed with efficiency-focused technologies and strategies, producers are digging deep to protect margins.

Thousands of industry professionals are converging in Fort Worth to hear from the region's most-active producers and midstream operators. Don't miss this once-a-year chance to explore the latest strategies and technologies with 35+ senior-level speakers and 100+ exhibitors.

Plays covered: Wolfcamp, Spraberry, Bone Spring, Leonard, Avalon, and Yeso

EVP, Permian Operations
Pioneer Natural Resources

Q: How is your company navigating today's market challenges and capitalizing on opportunities?

A: Pioneer has the largest Spraberry/Wolfcamp acreage position with decades of drilling inventory. We are well positioned to weather the current low commodity price environment with a strong balance sheet, strong derivatives positions to protect cash flow through 2016, and a capital program funded through 2017 with no incremental debt required.

In response to the outlook for continuing weak oil prices, Pioneer is reducing its horizontal drilling activity by 50% while still growing 2016 production and preserving the company's strong balance sheet and cash position. Our Permian team has realigned to meet the challenges of this downturn and position itself to be the strongest operation in the basin when commodity prices return.

Eagle Ford May Reopen For A&D Business, But With Limited Hours
Until recently, the Eagle Ford Shale has become a no man’s land for deals as the Permian Basin’s favorite children—the Midland and the Delaware—swallowed up A&D activity.But lately the question is whether the Eagle Ford—a mature play—is back.As Keanu Reeves’ film character John Wick might respond, “Yeah, I’m thinking it’s back.”The large $1.3 billion clue dropped in everyone’s lap on May 17 was EnerVest’s announcement that it had three deals in place in Karnes County, Texas, with production of 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Mboe/d).
