An Example Using the Permian Basin









Webinar Details

July 15th, 2019 | 10:00 – 11:00 AM Central 
The “parent-child” issue is surfacing in shale hot spots across the U.S. 
The number of child wells in the Permian now make up half of all wells and will steadily grow, according to Schlumberger Ltd. 
There are many theories on how this issue will affect future production and growth in the market, so what’s the real deal? 
Join us for our webinar, The Parent-Child Issue: Determining the Future Effects of Well Spacing on Your Area of Interest, on Tuesday, July 9 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Central. See how Drillinginfo’s comprehensive data set and tools analyze future production, development, and volume forecasts in your area of interest.
Using the Permian Basin as an example, you will learn how to answer questions like:
  • What is the impact of parent/child and infill wells on productivity?
  • What does this imply for well-level economics?
  • How does this translate to volume forecasts for a midstream system? What is the volume risk?
  • How does the lower productivity impact development plans, especially in a world where E&Ps are focused on return to shareholders instead of growth?
