U.S. Shale Roars Back at OPEC

OPEC may get its members to agree to continue to tamp down oil production, but it will be a Pyrrhic victory.

The biggest threat to the 13-member group’s dominance has been U.S. shale.

In November 2014, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries decided to keep production levels high in the hope it could maintain market share. But that was a difficult task to begin with, and since then, U.S. shale producers have become even more efficient. Read more at link

PORTLAND, Texas (AP) — Exxon Mobil Corp. and a Saudi partner plan to build a multi-billion dollar petrochemical plant near the Texas coast, Texas' governor said Wednesday.

The project will be a venture involving Exxon and Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corp. Exxon officials have said it'll be among the largest ethane steam cracker plants in the world, with an opening scheduled for 2024.

The plant will be built in Portland, just north of Corpus Christi, on roughly 1,300 acres (526 hectares). Estimated to cost about $10 billion, the plant will produce components used to make polye . . .

Drilling permits surge, but not all shale wells completed

Texas issued more than 1,300 drilling permits in March, twice as many as the same month in 2015. Rigs are rising and companies are rushing back to the shale patch, and to the Permian Basin in particular. But at the same time, well completions were lower than they were last year. The result will be a rise in production but also an increase in the number of drilled but uncompleted wells (DUCs), which will leave a level of production sitting on the sidelines.

Texas shale producers applied for more than 1,300 oil and gas drilling permits last month with the majority awarded in the Permian basin, the most active U.S. oil patch, according to the state's energy regulator.

Despite a near tripling of new well permits, to 1,310 wells compared with 511 during the same month last year, the Texas Railroad Commission data also showed a decline in the number of well completions, the final step before production can begin.

"This is a clear indication that drilling activity will increase at a steady pace compared to last year," said Ed Longanecke . . .

ExxonMobil will invest $20 billion at 11 new and existing sites in the next 10 years to expand its manufacturing and export capacity along the Gulf of Mexico, the company announced March 6.
