A Fireside Chat With A Permian Legend

Pioneer Natural Resources maximizes its commanding Spraberry and Wolfcamp positions with enhanced completions and added rigs in 2016. But before he passes the baton later this year, chairman and CEO Scott Sheffield will share his unique Permian vision.

Minding The Gap: The Permian's Plummeting Costs

Equity capital continues to flow to Permian producers, some of which appear to be achieving Saudi-type production costs. How sustainable are the new margins that are being seen throughout the Permian? Is there room for further cost reductions?

  • Jeff Tillery, Managing Director, Head of Capital Markets, Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co.

Higher Or Lower: The Oil-Price Outlook

In the end, it all comes down to the price of oil. Listen in as this top analyst discusses the macros ahead. Is $40 the new $60? Can producers expect $80 again?

Operator Spotlight: Delaware Hotspot

This producer was one of the first to head west to unlock the Delaware's rich reserves. It continues to drill longer and faster for impressive results. Here are the results to date and the forecast.

Spotlight: M&A–All The Permian Acres

We've come a long way from Santa Rita #1. It and subsequent basin discoveries hold their status as "legendary" to this day. Yet the basin is producing new legends. What's the price to play today? Here are the numbers.

  • Jeff Sieler, Managing Director & Co-Head of A&D, Citigroup Inc. — Presentation not released

Afternoon Keynote: Alpine High & Permian-Wide

With some 1.75 million net Permian acres, Apache has positions in the Delaware and Midland basins as well as on the shelf and platform, including in its new Alpine High deep Woodford and Barnett play in Reeves County. Resource there alone is estimated at 3 billion barrels of oil and 75 Tcf of rich gas. Here are its recent results and plans.

Technology Roundtable: Making It All Pay

Enhanced completion designs continue to augment strong drilling practices to ensure the many stacked zones found throughout the Permian Basin reveal their prize. Here you’ll hear the latest on better fracks and higher EURs, while watching costs more carefully.

  • Randy Foutch, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Laredo Petroleum Inc.

Rigs & Services Spotlight

Activity in the Permian is still increasing off its lows, but are the crews and equipment going to be available as companies add rigs or frack spreads by year end? What kind of pricing scenarios can producers anticipate going into first-half 2017?

  • John Lindsay, Chief Executive Officer, Helmerich & Payne Inc.

Panel: The Permian Buyers' Club

These buyers discuss their growing Permian positions and an M&A advisor describes what's left to add organically plus the heat map for acquisitions. What commodity-price point or sales metric is needed to make sellers willing to place acreage on the market?
