Producers burned or vented 661 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) in the Permian Basin.
An estimated 31 hydraulic fracturing fleets, or 11% of those currently operating, were turned off in the last week, according to data from consultancy Primary Vision.
The running rate of frac activity in the Permian has shifted from 15 to 20 wells per week in May and June, to 40 to 45 wells per week in the last three weeks. Last week, week 29, activity was particularly strong with 63 started frac operations based on our preliminary estimates. This level of activity has not been seen in the Permian since early April this year.
