E Hartstreet LLC: Bakken Production Per Well Continues To Improve
Enhanced completions continue to improve production per foot in all US plays. These improvements have been seen in the Bakken as well. The driving season may be an opportunity to add several Bakken core players.

E Better Permian Breakevens Pressure OPEC
The Permian continues to show significant improvements in well costs. We expect this to continue, and if oil prices rise it could mean a relatively large improvement.

E Hartstreet LLC: Possible Acquisitions In The Permian Part 2
The number of operators willing to sell acreage in the Permian is decreasing. While this inherently increases the costs of acquisitions, it will also increase valuations of current acreage holders.

E Hartstreet LLC: Possible Acquisitions In The Permian
There is little acreage to acquire with value in the Permian. Some will reach and pay top dollar as NBL recently did in its acquisition of CWEI. There are some private names with significant footprints, which could be targets of CVX, XOM, and COP.

E Hartstreet Oil: Occidental Uses Less Expensive Well Design, But Current Results Are Much Better
OXY is a key player in the Permian. It is using a much better well design in New Mexico than southern Reeves. We expect that newer designs will lower breakevens without increasing well costs.

E Hartstreet Oil: FANG's New Permian Acquisition Could Be A Home Run
FANG continues to impress in the Midland core. Its recent acquisition in the Delaware is a risky one, with little development to date. This could provide significant upside, as a couple of big wells could increase acreage valuations significantly.

Yep, its the Billings Montana refinery. It gets the majority of its light crude from Wyoming and its heavy crude from Alberta Canada. It isn't a huge refinery, but does about 60K bbls/d of throughput (I would have to check that).

The U.S. oil rig count remains unchanged at 406 following eight consecutive weekly gains, Baker Hughes says in its latest survey.

The total U.S. rig count, which includes a drop of 2 rigs drilling for natural gas to 81, fell by 2 to 489.

Thanks James,

We currently own $CLR and like it more for its STACK leasehold than core Bakken. It seems to be doing the right things, hopefully Mr. Hamm continues to do so.

Thanks James,

Some think it could be the best geology in the US, but we don't know for sure. It will take some time, but given the initial results it will be an excellent play whether it is better than the Permian or not. The nice thing is those breakevens are coming down even more this year. Things should get interesting by year end.

Not to say that Einhorn doesn't know what he is talking about, but he did highlight some names that will be around for a very long time. He was right, just incorrect about how big the "fallout" would be. At least he swung for for the fence.

Thanks for commenting Alexa and Michael. Great question, and one that I should have described better or in more detail in the article. A zipper frac is done on one well pad with several drilled but un-completed welds are located. The completion crew can complete those wells at (not exactly the same time) the same time. Once the crew gets started on the first it starts the second and the third, etc. it saves a significant amount of time which also saves a lot of money. The more wells done on one pad the more money saved
