Introduction – US tight oil costs

December 2016

The intention of this web site is to analyse production data and assemble cost data on US tight oil production in order to have a  basis for serious cost calculations under different scenarios. The analysis is primarily focussed on Bakken data because Bakken has been the purest tight oil producer in the US and North Dakota offers the most detailed production data, also permitting differentiated sub sample analysis. It’s intended to extend the focus to the Permian area, but only on a more aggregated level because of limited data availability.

The data in the different sub chapters are updated from time to time.
