Bakken Shale in the US, 2019 – Oil and Gas Shale Market Analysis and Outlook to 2023


There is considerable potential to raise the crude oil production in the Bakken shale play from current levels of 1.44 million barrels of oil per day (mmbd) to at least 2 mmbd. Bakken oil wells have shown competitive performances when compared to recently completed wells in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford. Bakken wells exhibit the lowest breakeven price among the three shale plays at US$30.50 per barrel (bbl), mainly due to the exceptionally high 30-day initial production (IP) rates of over 1,250 boed observed in this play.

Moreover, many Bakken operators are picking up the trend of drilling longer laterals and experimenting with completion designs. Companies are drilling laterals up to 12,000 feet (ft). The general objective remains to increase the productivity of the new producing wells in a higher proportion with respect to the cost increase associated with these more complex wells.
