Thanks RE for coordinating the convergence of these doomstars.  I think Ron is a bit off about active rig count increasing in the bakken, its been fairly flat last i checked and as i have mentioned before i know of a couple of rigs that have been stacked out and some that will be stacked out when current wells are completed.  Of course all that really is worth keeping an eye on is active rig count https://www.dmr.nd.gov/oilgas/riglist.asp (https://www.dmr.nd.gov/oilgas/riglist.asp) .  I personally expect changes to occur there at the start of the fiscal year based on warnings the small service provider i work for has given us about upcoming work.  It is truly hard to fathom how funds can continually be allocated to drilling wells in the bakken at current rate when it is in all likelihood being done at a net loss. 

If drilling does not decrease in bakken at current prices I think it indicates an even more dire situation than if there is a bust as it would seem that we are doubling up our bets on increasing oil prices and then spreading the financial risks out in the greater system.  That wouldn't end well.  So i personally am hoping for a pretty big bust here,  followed by a resurgence of interest in peak oil, and a MASSIVE expenditure to transition to an increasingly feasible solar PV future.  Of course flying pigs may be an equally likely outcome....

Worth keeping an eye on bakken rig count https://www.dmr.nd.gov/oilgas/riglist.asp (https://www.dmr.nd.gov/oilgas/riglist.asp) I know for a fact that at least 10 rigs are going to be stacked out upon well completion.  Those numbers are likely to start to slide real soon....

Likely to accelerate here as WTI now down to around $61, with the $50s likely in the next week.

It's Different This Time... Rig-Count Edition

Tyler Durden's picture



 

In July 2008, crude oil prices peaked and began to fall quickly. After 2 months they had dropped 30%, but being the smartest extrapolators in the room, producers piled on the rig count driving it higher and higher until around 5 months after oil prices peaked... the rig count completely collapsed. Today, it has now been almost 6 months since oil peaked and began its accelerating free-fall and rig counts have just started to drop (still 2% above the June peak oil levels)...  

 

There is always a lag... and with permits down 40%, let's just see if it's different this time...

 

Of course, it's different this time... it's way worse! All these rigs are backed by massive debt loads at drastically lower costs of funding than is possible now... but we should ignore that, right?

Yeah it doesn't look good, thinking mass exodus start of the new year...   Its going to be awfully interesting to see just how much exposure the financial system has to the HY bonds that have fueled some of the bakkens growth.  Even without much exposure the loss of drilling activity in the bakken is going to be rather profound.

Depends on how the price of natural gas holds up. Any decent walker rig capable of what, 750K hookload, top drive system and decent triplex pumps can go to work back east as fast as it can be moved. Will depend on company exposure and hedging on their wet/dry gas locations I imagine, but what appears to be disappearing is the BTU premium on the liquids that generated much activity and interest in the first place. About time the differential got back to historical norms.
