    • In addition to beating Q3 estimates, EOG Resources is hiking its full-year crude oil/condensate production growth target to 31% from 29%. The full-year total production growth target has been hiked to 16.5% from 14%.
    • U.S. crude oil/condensate production grew 29% Y/Y in Q3 thanks to "production gains from the South Texas Eagle Ford, North Dakota Bakken and Delaware Basin."
    • To deal with falling oil prices, EOG has "crude oil financial price swap contracts in place for 192,000 Bopd at a weighted average price of $96.15 per barrel' for the period lasting from Nov. 1-Dec. 31.
    • For 2015, EOG has "crude oil financial price swap contracts in place for an average of 28,350 Bopd at a weighted average price of $91.00 per barrel, excluding unexercised options."

    • Bakken shale oil producers are under pressure to scale back their 2015 drilling plans after Bakken oil fell below $80/bbl for the first time in nearly a year, as worldwide crude prices decline amid ample North American supplies and Persian Gulf producers signaling they’re prepared to keep output high to protect their market shares in Asia.
    • The "body language" among producers is that capex next year will be flat or only slightly higher, vs. earlier expectations for 5%-10% increases, says Topeka Capital's Gabriele Sorbara, who adds Bakken drillers need prices of $70-$80/bbl to earn a typical 15%-25% return.
    • Bakken wells produced a record 1.047M barrels of crude in July, accounting for 12% of total U.S. output: CLR, EOG, KOG, WLL, HES, XOM, OAS, NOG, EOX, MRO.

    • The going rate for U.S. crude oil could tumble $30 below international benchmarks in the coming decades if U.S. policymakers don’t reverse a ban on exporting crude oil, according to a report by Wood Mackenzie.
    • The falling prices could be made worse by new drilling technology that may double recovery rates and add an additional 1.5M-3M bbl/day of new oil production - as much as 25% more oil than is expected today - the report says.
    • The report is not specific about the kinds of technologies that could draw more oil from the ground, but it cites companies such as EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) that in the early phase of testing new methods now.

    • North Dakota's daily oil production jumped 5% in July to an all-time high 34.4M barrels (~1.1M bbl/day), state regulators say, although the number was lower than expected as producers worked to meet aggressive flaring-reduction targets.
    • Natural gas production hit 1.3B cf/day, also an all-time high, but the percentage of natural gas flared in the state fell to 26% in July from 30% in June.
    • In an effort to curb flaring, state regulators issued strict goals earlier this year with key benchmarks for flaring percentages each month; for October, for instance, the state's oil producers cannot flare more than 74% of natural gas produced.
    • Bakken producers include CLR, EOG, KOG, WLL, HES, XOM, OAS, NOG, EOX, MRO.

    • The energy sector has seen little M&A activity despite a growth shortfall and cheap borrowing rates, but UBS analysts think a focus on incremental returns may lead to less exploration and more deals as resource prices on the market have fallen.
    • The firm figures four large-cap E&P companies - Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO) and Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD) - could prove tantalizing acquisition targets, but the buyer likely would need very deep pockets.
    • In the case of EOG, UBS says the company's strong position in the three biggest tight oil plays  - the Eagle Ford, Bakken and Permian - make it a perfect fit for an integrated major looking to expand in those areas.

    • The day's five biggest decliners in the S&P 500 are all energy companies - Newfield Exploration (NFX -5.6%), EOG Resources (EOG -3.6%), Anadarko Petroleum (APC -2.9%), Cimarex Energy (XEC -3.3%) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD -3.4%) - as crude oil prices slide to new lows, including Brent crude's first move below $100/bbl in more than a year.
    • Brent crude dropped $1.12, or 1.1%, to $99.70/bbl after falling to as low as $99.36, a 16-month low, while U.S. crude slipped more than a percent to below $92 after settling at $93.29 on Friday for its sixth weekly drop in seven.
    • Traders are concerned crude demand won't keep up, with data from the U.S. and China, the world's top oil consumers, suggesting their economies aren't growing as quickly as had been hoped.

    • The Marcellus region is now the world's biggest natural gas shale play, and there’s still $90B to be made by tapping the area’s reserves, according to a study by Wood Mackenzie.
    • The energy consultant predicts that the top 20 operators in the Marcellus will earn nearly $86B over the life of the play after the costs of reaching the reserves; for comparison, it estimates ~$118B to be made by extracting the resources in North Dakota’s Bakken region, but most production there is higher-priced oil.
    • Major Marcellus shale producers include CHK, RRC, RDS.A, RDS.B, TLM, APC, ATLS, COG, CVX, CNX, EQT, EOG, XOM, WPX, XCO, CRZO, SWN, AR.

    • In an investor presentation today, EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) touted a pair of plays in the Permian Basin the company believes have the potential to achieve returns in excess of 100% each.
    • The Leonard Shale is a shallow play believed to have potential reserves of 550M barrels of oil net to EOG, while the company is still evaluating potential reserves for Second Bone Springs; the two plays sit below 73K net acres EOG holds in the region.
    • EOG hasn't yet revealed its plans for the region, but it has high expectations for the plays and told analysts it plans to drill several more wells there this year and next.
    • The potential for the plays is important, Wells Fargo's David Tameron says, since investors’ biggest concern about EOG has been its need for expanded inventory; after several years of success in the Bakken and Eagle Ford, "people want to know what’s next.”

    • Natural gas production in the Marcellus region exceeded 15B cf/day in July, the most productive period ever recorded there, according to a new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
    • Marcellus, located mostly in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, now accounts for nearly 40% of total U.S. shale gas production, and its rapid growth isn’t expected to ebb soon, the report says.
    • New wells in the region are expected to deliver another 600M cf/day, more than offsetting decline rates, for a net production increase of 247M cf/day.
    • Major Marcellus shale producers include CHK, RRC, RDS.A, RDS.B, TLM, APC, ATLS, COG, CVX, CNX, EQT, EOG, XOM, WPX, XCO, CRZO, SWN.
