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.

Argentina Will Produce 653,000 Barrels Per Day Of Crude By 2025
Argentina aims to eliminate its need for crude imports while increasing domestic oil output to 653,000 barrels per day (Mbbl/d) in 2025, a 23% increase from 2015, an official from the Energy Ministry said on May 26.The South American country is working to cover its energy needs after becoming a net importer of energy products three years ago due to decreasing output amid a low investment environment.To achieve that, it needs to boost local output to cut crude imports and start reducing costly purchases of LNG currently made through tenders on the open market and from neighboring Chile.
