Pump It Like the Russians

Stephen Bierman 1 POWER THROUGH OBSTACLES Russia’s oil industry has proved its strength over the past several years, raising production while powering through the Great Recession, a round of international sanctions, and the steepest drop in oil prices in a generation. In September, Russia set a post-Soviet record for crude output, pumping 11 million barrels a day. Next year its oil companies should be able to produce even more, if the Kremlin wants them to. On Oct. 10, Russian President Vladimir Putin said a freeze, or even a cut, would be the proper response to the currently oversupplied m

Fat Wallets Come To the Shale Patch

Javier Blas • Shell and Chevron are picking up where wildcatters left off • “We can see production above 700,000 barrels a day” Big Oil is muscling in on shale country. For example, there’s a project called Bongo 76-43, a well being drilled 10,000 feet beneath the table-flat West Texas desert. It extends horizontally for a mile, blasting through rock to capture light crude from the sprawling Permian Basin. While the first chapter of the U.S. shale revolution belonged to wildcatters like Harold Hamm and the late Aubrey McClendon, who parlayed borrowed money into billions, Bongo 76-43 is fin

Despite Cheap Crude Prices, America’s Best Oil Field, Texas’ Permian Basin, Is Thriving

Alex Nussbaum Although cheap oil has forced frackers to shut down drilling rigs across large swaths of the U.S. shale patch, from the Bakken fields of North Dakota to the Eagle Ford in South Texas, there’s one region where the profits are still flowing. The Permian Basin, a 75,000-square-mile patch of scrubby desert stretching across West Texas and into New Mexico, has emerged as the most resilient oil field in America. Overall crude production in the U.S. is down by about a million barrels a day over the past 12 months, but output from the Permian continues to grow. All signs indicate that t
