OIL2120 - Basin Economics and Carbon Capture Opportunities

Nov 10, 2021 12:35pm ‐ Nov 10, 2021 1:25pm

Standard: $49.00


The last few years have been a wild ride for oil and gas prices and upstream operators' activity levels. As we move toward a full reopening of the economy, higher hydrocarbon prices are allowing operators to return to the drill bit while still meeting investor demands for capital constraints and real returns. But increased focus on ESG concerns and climate change is forcing operators to consider more than just dollars and cents when they make an investment decision. In this session, Neil H. Little, Vice President and Reserves Engineer at Netherland, Sewell and Associates, Inc., will discuss the current economics of investing in U.S. basins, and how carbon capture could provide operators with the chance to increase returns by utilizing their reservoir rock a second time.

Learning Objectives:
  • Analyze the economics of different basins across the United States
  • Identify the impacts of hydrocarbon prices, capital and operating expenses, and taxes in calculating break-even economics
  • Recognize the opportunity carbon capture presents operators to generate additional revenues from reservoirs they already own
