The Outlook for Oil and Gas Production in the Permian and SCOOP/STACK
U.S. drilling operations have increasingly become concentrated across several major shale plays. Of these plays, the Permian in South-West Texas and the South-Central Oklahoma Oil Province (SCOOP) along with the Sooner Trend, Anadarko, and Canadian and Kingfisher (STACK) in the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma are displaying some of the most promising signs of growth.
In light of these developments, the CSIS Energy & National Security Program hosted a private, half-day conference to explore in detail the various perspectives on both the resource potential and possible production profile outlooks for the Permian and SCOOP/STACK. In addition, we addressed some of the challenges (e.g., water availability, work crews, takeaway capacity, storage, the role of associated gas) and the role that government could play in the outlook for production.
The workshop's presentations and agenda have been made available on this page.
