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.

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.

Stone Energy Negotiates Sale Of Marcellus In Restructuring Bid Stone Energy (NYSE: SGY) is talking to potential buyers for its Marcellus assets as it attempts to back into a possible bankruptcy filling with a restructuring agreement in place among its creditors.The Layfette, La.-based company plans to sell its Appalachian assets to an unrelated third party for a net price of $350 million, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Previous market tests indicated that Stone Energy’s assets could fetch a sales price ranging from $250 million to $400 million, depending on commodity prices.Under the company’s plan, $150 million from the net proceeds—about 43%—would be paid to noteholders. The remaining money would be used to pay bank debt and to fund working capital needs. If the Appalachia assets sell for more than $350 million, noteholders would receive 60% of the proceeds.
