image1West Texas continues to buzz with talk of the oil boom taking place in several new plays across the Permian Basin. The Cline Shale (sometimes called the Lower Wolfcamp) has by far the greatest potential with some estimates putting the total recoverable reserves at 30 billion barrels. This would make the Cline larger than the Bakken and Eagle Ford combined. Our goal is to offer a platform that is unmatched by other resources covering the Cline and we publish the industry’s only newsletter focused exclusively on the play. We are committed to the long-term growth of the Cline Shale and its Big Country communities and look forward to hearing from you!

Cline Shale Exploration Activity – April 18th, 2014

Drilling RigIn the past month, drilling activity in the Cline region has grown considerably with an impressive 14 additional rigs operating on the ground.  More importantly, it is the rigs drilling horizontal wells that saw the largest gains with 18 additional drill sites.  The number of vertical rigs dropped by 4 over the past month.  This is by far the largest increase in horizontal drilling activity over a 30 day period recorded in the region and possibly signals an inflection point in the region’s growth.

Prior to this month, it took the horizontal drilling fleet 3 months to grow by 18 rigs, and before that it too 6 months to add as many rigs.  There is a clear acceleration of activity in the region, especially with the more sophisticated horizontal rigs that tend to produce more prolific wells.
