Oxford Energy Podcast – Current Trends in the US Shale Oil Industry

James Henderson and Trisha Curtis, the CEO and founder of PetroNerds and a visiting fellow at OIES, discuss her forthcoming paper on current trends in the US shale oil industry. Following recent industry concerns that productivity and well performance might be set to undermine the future production outlook, Trisha outlines her view that in fact the shale industry continues to show impressive improvement across a number of metrics and that oil output should continue to rise impressively over the next two to three years at least. She discusses statistical evidence from a number of the major shale plays to reinforce her analysis, as well as providing specific examples of technology improvements that are leading to greater efficiency and enhanced well performance.
