Associated Natural Gas in the Permian – Friend or Frenemy?

For years associated natural gas from oil production in the Permian Basin has been viewed as a byproduct with little monetary value. Infrastructure constraints and challenged pricing caused many operators to flare produced gas rather than capture and sell it. With significant egress capacity additions out of the Permian and gas prices expected to stay […]

Reduce Your AP Workload by Half in 2021

As we kick off a new year, energy companies are running leaner than ever. A major goal is to focus on minimizing the necessary cost or effort expended. If your company is trying to figure out how free up your staff’s time or just manage a heavy workload, the number one action we recommend is […]

A Modest Proposal for Small Operators

COVID-19 Focused Investments: Publicly Traded Companies   Investor demands for showing free cash flow and capital discipline have been met with oil and gas public equities tamping down their capex spend, hunkering down to wait for WTI to appreciate enough to start completing DUCs and bringing their supplies to market, and consolidating in mergers or […]

International Upstream Returns Still Competitive

Long-lead international upstream projects still offer returns that remain competitive with North American oil plays and the fast-growing renewable energy sector despite growing economic, investor and regulatory headwinds. As a result, long-term production declines from the international project slate will continue to be offset by world-class projects such as the Guyana/Suriname developments that offer strong […]

Algo Versus Reality

Updating hundreds of thousands of type curves with new production data is no small feat. At Enverus, we use a proprietary type curve algorithm to draw and update type curves automatically in Enverus CORE based on our cleaned production data, leaving our analysts time to work on high-value analysis. We conducted a study to determine […]

A Geologist’s Backpack

All geologists working in the field start their day by throwing a few essential items into their backpacks: A hand lens, a hammer and a pad of paper to record the day’s findings. For geologists working from the office, we typically line our “backpacks” with other essential supplies. Geologists powered by Enverus start their day […]

Market Update – Election and Vaccines

The consensus among market participants leading up to the U.S. election linked a Joe Biden win to a bearish outcome for global oil prices and the oil industry. Despite this fear, a rally in global oil prices drove the XOP, an ETF which tracks a basket of U.S. exploration and production equities, to outperform the […]

Prepare Your Royalty Owner Support for Tax Season

The buildup to tax season can be a hectic and stressful time for operators. Every year, operators spend weeks processing and mailing 1099s and state tax documents to mineral rights owners, while handling related inquiries from owners (which could increase by up to three times normal volumes). Unfortunately, many operators are dealing with reduced staff. […]

Working From Home For the Holidays – Tips for Risk Analysts

It’s scarcely any different for those of us who work in the business of distributing, collecting, or analyzing market data. The imports, exports, and pipeline flows you […]

Lock It Down

With the recent surge in COVID-19 infections across much of the developed world, policymakers have started to re-introduce lockdown measures to control the spread. These efforts often restrict the movement of people in public spaces, reducing close contact to one another. France is currently under a national lockdown where people are only permitted to go […]

Ranking the Rock

One tool Enverus uses to evaluate and analyze different regions of a play is generating distinct geographical regions. Enverus uses a 2D map clustering algorithm to create geologically similar regions that are ranked based on rock characteristics. We then look at other factors like well activity, productivity and cost structure to assign breakevens to each […]

Oil Demand at 2024

It is Nov. 13, 2024, and for the first time in five years, global oil demand is set to average just over 100 MMbbl/d annually. Oil consumption trod a long and uneven path to get here. While the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the energy “transition” in the OECD, oil is experiencing a surprising renaissance in non-OECD […]

Southern Delaware – The Children Need Space

Well results in the southern Delaware Basin degraded severely in recent years. Although early parent well delineation presented enticing recoveries, as operators tightened well spacing and introduced child well drilling, meaning a second, third or even fourth well in close proximity to the original one, oil recoveries and economic returns suffered.

Dipping an Analytical Toe Into the Deep Basin

The Alberta Deep Basin encompasses stacked hydrocarbon-bearing intervals, allowing many operator to target multiple intervals to boost economics. Unlike other similar plays such as the Montney or Midland Basin, the Deep Basin’s zones are more conventional, meaning they consist of discontinuous shorefaces and winding channels deposited millions of years ago. As a result, the regional […]

Touchless Invoice Processing for Oil and Gas – Benefits of Doing More with Less

Even before the pandemic destroyed demand in oil and gas, margins were shrinking, shareholders demanded proof of returns and there was a resounding cry to “Do More with less” across the energy industry. As oil prices fell to sub-zero levels, lay-offs were prevalent and reduced internal teams were left to shoulder the workload. Fast-forward to […]

Midstream Exposure to Federal Lands

With the U.S. presidential election less than two weeks away, a potential Joe Biden victory and his promise of restricting access to federal lands are top of mind for investors.
