Permian Basin beats anew as heart of Texas oil production

A new EIA report underscores the remarkable comeback of the Permian Basin, which boomed in an earlier era, faded and now leads the U.S. in oil production.

Daily crude oil production in the Permian, which lies under much of west Texas and part of eastern New Mexico, has increased from a low of 850K barrels in 2007 to 1.35M barrels last year.

The increased production is concentrated in six low-permeability formations: the Spraberry, Wolfcamp, Bone Spring, Glorieta, Yeso, and Delaware.

Among the top Permian producers: OXY, PXD, APA, KMP, XOM, COG, CVX, EOG, EGN, XEC, FANG.

    At ~20,000/boe a day being the production for all of their areas combined, LGCY is a bit of a small player compared to the others. Even KMP has over 50,000/day in the Permian.

    I'm going to give you all an early xmas present. KWK, currently at $2.42, has about 105,000 acres in Wolfcamp and Bone Springs. As well as a 14 TCFE resource in British Columbia Horn River Basin. If it weren't for the 1.7 billion debt they would be a $15-$20 share. However, their Permian assets are booked at near nothing, and their Horn River assets are booked at only 1.5 BCFE.

    15:1 debt to CF. That's not a gift, that's a drugstore handicap that could go sideways in a hurry.

    I am sure glad I did not take you up on your offer. What a disastrous quarter from KWK.

    RSPP may be the next FANG.
    PE (Parsley Energy) has potential as well.
    Both players in the Permian.

    Yes I do believe that KWK will earn tremendously, especially via their holdings in the Horn River Basin. Out of the group of 11 companies operating there, KWK is about the only junior US player.
