Supply Shortage in the Making

Analysis suggests that the U.S. could face a supply squeeze in the short to mid-term that will likely drive up commodity prices. As global economies gradually emerge from the Covid-19-induced contraction, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates an increase in global oil demand of 6% in 2021. The supply side, on the other hand, shows a different trend. TGS analysis indicates a dramatic decrease in rig count, well shut-ins, high decline rates in unconventional wells and other challenges associated with shale production point to lower U.S. oil output in the near-term.

Whitepaper: Why Are Some Deepwater Plays Still Attractive?

A sustainable future for the industry in deepwater is further investment in proven sweet spots and a search for similar plays. The two prime characteristics of these sweet spots are exceptional reservoirs at unexceptional depths. Expensive deepwater wells must add as many barrels as possible. The industry is making progress developing deepwater finds. Projects sanctioned since 2012, and green fields now approaching FID, will together recover over 30 billion barrels of oil. These fields need just US$42/barrel on average to achieve a 10% return. Better reservoirs break even at lower prices.

How Real-Time Analytics on Streaming Data Can Transform the Oil Industry

Traditionally, oil companies have collected massive amounts of data from their equipment, fields and other operations. They stored all of that data, ran processes on it, got results and analyzed them. Then they started all over again with new data. But with today’s technologies, oil companies can change not just their speed and precision, but also the location where they inject “rapid” and “responsive” analytics into their processes. And that incredible difference changes the whole nature of the game.
