PacWest released the second edition of PumpingIQ China, which is the most comprehensive market intelligence product to-date, providing a detailed bottoms-up analysis of China’s oil & gas market and an assessment of unconventional activity and prospects. The report includes frac capacity additions and utilization, by operator/region, forecast through 2015, and well counts forecast to 2015 (by region, horizontal/vertical,
PacWest is excited about the launch of this report as it contains new analyses on the impact of the macro environment on China O&G activity, including:
- Detailed discussion of impact of anti-corruption activities on Chinese frac market activity, by play, including forecasts
- More comprehensive analysis of policy and political landscape, including detailed analysis of alternatives (LNG, pipeline imports, coal-to-gas, CBM)
- Detailed examination of current frac’ed / horizontal well costs and pricing versus alternatives
- Updates to shale geology and CBM analysis
- Cost reduction strategies and oilfield services opportunities

Rigzone and Shale Play Water Management articles share data from PacWest’s recent WellIQ report for 2014Q2. Both articles include the forecasts for US land growth. The August 29th Rigzone article explains:
According to PacWest’s WellIQ data, four formations – the Bakken in North Dakota, the DJ Basin in Colorado and Wyoming, and the Permian and Eagle Ford
in Texas – will account for just over three/quarters of the growth in horizontally fracked stages.
The Marcellus/Utica is expected to have 15 percent compounded growth, while Eagle Ford and the Bakken are projected by PacWest to grow by 8 percent and 6 percent, respectively.
Moreover, the total number of wells is forecast to decrease by less than 1% in 2014, due to a significant decrease in D&C activity directed towards VT/DR wells.

And Shale Play Water Management also shares that although 2014 will have a slight decrease, the number of wells drilled in 2014 should surpass 2013 levels by 6%, while the number of horizontally drilled wells is expected to increase by 9%. Horizontally frac’ed stages are expected to increase by almost 20%.

PacWest Consulting’s WellIQ report cited in the Bakken Magazine last week on activity in the Bakken.
Christopher Robart explained that in order to fully grasp the level of drilling and completion activity—and the need for services related to either activity—Robart and his team focus on new horizontally fracked wells in combination with the number of frack stages per well. “More stages equals more demand for hydraulic services and more pumping time needed per well.”
“The next several years are forecast to be strong for most all oilfield services and equipment players; however, the challenge will be within the supply chain,” he said in an announcement of the WellIQ report. “The winners will be the companies who can manage the logistics and risks around having the right personnel, services, materials and equipment at the right place, when it is needed on-siteGrimy stays definitely gonna spy mobile phone number free and same, especially.

Frac is Back: Robust D&C Activity is Heating up the Frac Market in North America
Our 14Q2 release of PumpingIQ report, just published on August 15, 2014, provides an in-depth analysis and set of forecasts for the North American and International frac markets. We forecast strong market growth in the North American market for hydraulic fracturing services through 2016 due to robust drilling and completion (D&C) activity, with frac pricing increases expected through 2015. Tightening market conditions are resulting in supply chain constraints in key growth plays. Constraints in the availability of frac sand and the logistics capacity to transport the frac sand are leading to cost escalation and work delays.
D&C activity is robust in both the US Land and Canadian markets, with HZ wells frac’ed increasing 9% in 2014 and HZ frac stages increasing by 19%. In the US Land market, significant growth in key plays – the Permian, DJ Basin, Utica – and continued growth in the Eagle Ford, Marcellus, and Bakken is driving growth across all D&C activity metrics, including rig count, well spuds, wells frac’ed, and frac stages. In the Canadian market, strong growth in the Montney and Duvernay plays, in addition to growth in the Cardium and Deep Basin, is driving increases in D&C activity.
According to Managing Partner, Nilesh Dayal, “Rapidly tightening market conditions have resulted in price increases for many E&Ps. After more than 3 years of pricing pressure in the frac market, the dam has finally broken for pricing, and service providers are finally having success in negotiating higher pricing.”
While market conditions are driving price increases, costs recovery on key consumables, including sand and chemicals are driving a large part of the increases. North American frac sand demand is expected to increase by nearly 30% in 2014, compared to 2013. This has resulted in logistics constraints in both rail and trucking capacity and price increases across the sand value chain.
However, not all pumpers are consistently benefiting from price increases. Chris Robart, Partner notes that, “There has been wide variance in price increases across pumpers/customers, with some reporting price increases as high as 20% in key growth plays where market conditions are most tight. However, price negotiations will continue to be on-going and in many cases higher prices will not be implemented until late 2014.”
Given the evolving demand landscape and operational requirements, including aging fleets, continuous pumping operations, and increased refurbishment activity, we have begun analyzing the frac market in terms of “Marketed Capacity” and “Effective Utilization.” Our analysis reveals that utilization is quickly improving, and estimates that raw utilization is 84% in 14Q3, while effective utilization is 90%, with higher rates in key growth plays.
In response to increased demand, pumpers have upgraded 2014 newbuild programs and have begun committing to sizable 2015 newbuild programs, with 1.4 million HHP in net capacity additions estimated for 2014 and 1.6 million HHP in 2015. “While capacity additions may allow some pumpers to secure more work, it will be supply chain execution and delivery that will make or break their bottom lines,” adds Mr. Dayal.
We will hold a conference call on Thursday August 28, 2014 at 9:30am CST to discuss these and other views on the market. Call details are provided below. The call is open to the public.
