WEBINAR: PermiCan or PermiCan't?

The Battle of Production Growth vs Takeaway Capacity

This webinar took place on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 3 p.m ET / 1 p.m MT

Over the last three months as Permian oil production growth has filled outbound pipelines, the Midland-WTI differential has suffered with June delivery widening to as much as $12. At the same time natural gas bottlenecks are forming and infrastructure changes are impacting flows both in and out of the region.  With production growth continuing to push higher, the market is in a tight situation with crude, natural gas and natural gas liquids facing barrier to full realization of market value. 

The questions on many minds is how quickly can pipeline capacity ramp up and where will it go? Is there risk to oil production slowing down due to natural gas and natural gas liquids constraints, and when might we see constraints alleviated and market pricing increase back to normalized levels? What are the current forecast for oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids from the Permian Basin?

    • Production Forecast
    • Planned Infrastructure Update
