North American Gas and Oil Production Continues to Accelerate, Says New ICF
International Detailed Production Report
FAIRFAX, Va. -- February 13, 2014
ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and
technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has announced its
first-quarter 2014 Detailed Production Report. The report, a new information
product offered by ICF, provides a complete outlook for U.S. and Canada
natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGL), and oil production through 2035.
The Detailed Production Report presents annual production projections for more
than 50 basins throughout the U.S. and Canada, and includes total production
for both the U.S. and Canada. The report’s production projections are linked
to ICF’s Natural Gas-Strategic Outlook, which provides additional insight into
the future of the North American natural gas market.
The report contains many findings that will be of interest to oil and gas
producers, field services companies, and the investment community. Some
projected trends from the current report:
*In the short run, reduced gas-directed drilling activity will continue to
slow gas production growth from “dry” gas plays such as the Haynesville
Shale, the Greater Green River Basin, the Barnett Shale, and the
Fayetteville Shale. However, these plays are likely to rebound as market
growth firms gas prices.
*Conversely, liquids-rich plays have fared much better in the relatively
low gas price environment that persisted throughout much of 2013.
Consequently, U.S. NGL production, which has increased by more than
600,000 barrels per day during the past five years, is expected to
continue to grow and will likely double by the end of the projection.
*In today’s relatively high oil price environment, output from the
unconventional oil plays, such as the Bakken, the Cline, the Niobrara, and
the Eagle Ford, are likely to continue to grow.
*While high oil prices could promote growth of bitumen production in
Western Canada’s oil sands, continued delays in construction of new crude
transport capability present risks.
Comprehensive data included in the Detailed Production Report:
*Projected gas, oil, and NGL production by year and by region through 2035.
*Projected gas and oil well activity by year and region through 2035.
*Vintage production charts for each region, showing how production changes
*Estimated ultimate recover statistics for oil, gas, and NGL wells by
*A complete database that includes more than 250,000 rows of data for all
regions. This database enables the user to drill down through the
information and process the data for custom reports.
