Tuesday 23 September 2014, Amsterdam

Market Research Report Press Release
A new 160 page report: 'The 20 Leading Companies in Shale (Tight) Oil 2014', available on ASDReports, profiles the major players in the shale (tight) oil market, analysing their current involvement in the market, assessing their future prospects and detailing their capital expenditure on shale (tight) oil development.

The lead analyst of the report commented that: ‘Leading oil and gas companies across the world continue to migrate their E&P toward the now de-risked prospect of shale (tight) oil development.  The production of tight oil assets produce an ever-more predictable return on investment and does not come with the political and/or security risk of E&P of some locations around the world.  The US remains by far the dominant market for investment and the presence of the supply chain, expertise and equipment within America to develop these assets enhances the predictability of returns.  Technological risk is no longer present with the development of hydrocarbons from shale in the US space, allowing these resources to compete for investment with other areas of a company’s portfolio, e.g. deepwater E&P and oil sands. As prime acreage positions in the US become congested and increase in value, companies are looking to well designs, fracturing techniques and completion efficiencies to expand their operations and the percentage returned on capital invested.’

The report contains 93 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends in the shale (tight) oil market and the position of the leading companies within it. The new report provides shale oil capital expenditure (US$) and market share figures for the leading 20 companies in 2014, as well as analysing the longer term prospects for each company. A SWOT analysis is provided for each of the leading 20 companies, in addition to data and analysis of each company’s current shale oil acreage and shale oil spending as a percentage of total company spending. A PEST analysis of the shale oil market, covering the critical political, economical, social and technological issues influencing companies in the market is also included, in addition to exclusive interviews with Vicky Steiner, Executive Director of the North Dakota Association of Oil and Gas Producing Counties; Professor Wallace Tyner, Energy Economist with the Department of Agricultural Economics, Purdue University; and Kari Cutting, Vice President of the North Dakota Petroleum Council.
