Spotlight on the Permian Basin

Select Options

Oil and gas production in the Permian Basin has exploded over the past eight years, with crude oil production up more than 800% since a decade ago. This is causing constraints in various systems, from problems with the disposal of massive increases in produced water to power shortages and pipeline constraints.

We have produced a video series that discusses some of the issues and trends that we are seeing in the Permian Basin. We hope you find the content useful. Please feel free to reach out to the presenters with any questions you may have.
