Rystad: 2016 will be first year for decline in liquids production from North American shale, tight liquids plays

Rystad Energy’s latest research shows that 2016 will be the first year in which we see a decline in liquids production from North American shale oil and tight liquids plays. Some key plays will face a net decrease in liquids production year-over-year. 2016 production from the Eagle Ford and the Bakken is estimated to drop by 12% and 9%, respectively, compared to 2015. From 2010 to 2015, the top four shale liquids plays have grown by 860 kboe/d on average, with the highest increase coming from the Eagle Ford shale.
