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.

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.

Environmental Protection Agency: Wastewater Wells Likely Linked To Texas Earthquakes
Federal regulators have concluded that recent earthquakes in North Texas are likely linked to wastewater disposal wells used by the oil and gas industry, echoing findings from researchers at Texas universities. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials made the comment in a letter to the Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates the oil industry in the top crude-producing state.Quakes have been tied to the injection of saltwater, a normal byproduct of oil and gas drilling, into deep disposal wells and underground caverns.The Railroad Commission, which was not immediately available for comment, has in the past questioned the causal link found in university studies. But Texas has moved to install more earthquake monitoring stations.
