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.

If your business is oil and gas in West Texas, you can't afford to miss this year's DUG Permian Basin conference and exhibition! 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.

Germany's Fracking Limits Will Ban The Process From Clay Formations
Germany imposed limits on fracking on June 24, dealing a blow to efforts to develop shale gas. Under legislation passed by its lower house of Parliament, fracking will be banned in clay formations, which typically lie between 1,000 meters (m) and 2,500 m deep.Scientific test drilling will be allowed, but only with the permission of the relevant state government and under the watch of independent experts.Fracking for deep-lying or "tight" gas, typically 4,000 m to 5,000 m deep, which has been done for more than 30 years in Germany, will continue, but under more stringent regulation.
