Bakken DUCs Rise to Nearly 1,000 

Operators in Bakken are watching the uncompleted inventory closely. Continental Resources and others announced that fracturing operations would resume at $50-55 oil. Oil prices are now in the mid-$40's; however operators continue to evaluate second half drilling & completion plans that include reducing the backlog of uncompleted wells. 

Eagle Ford DUCs Stabilize at 1,250

After almost 18 months of decline, the change in uncompleted inventory in Eagle Ford is flat. The recent positive increases in Eagle Ford rigs show several operators commitment to the south Texas shale play. With active rigs concentrated in Karnes county, EOG, Marathon, and Statoil continue to drill in the Eagle Ford. 

In case you missed it, the US Energy Information Association (EIA) released their Short Term Energy Outlook last week stating with global supply outages and geopolitical events will continue to introduce volatility into the market. Read Energent's summary of EIA's outlook here.
