North American Tight Oil
In 2011, US oil production increased for the first time in 24 years. This new work is the first authoritative assessment of the tight oil renaissance in North America, providing play level analysis on the potential resource base.
Clients benefit from an unmatched level of coverage as well as our proven track record, including our global expertise in oil markets, capital costs and macro-economics. The result: informed strategic decision-making, no matter what your role in oil production, investment or regulation.
Despite the recent increase in oil production as a result of unconventional drilling technology, there is currently no authoritative product that provides this type of detail at the play level to help assess the potential for North American tight oil.
The North American Tight Oil Study will provide customers with a basis on which to evaluate and rank opportunities, benchmark their own activities against evolving industry standards and trends and assess the more competitive international tight oil opportunities.
