Share Article

Leading energy consultancy firm releases latest report forecasting North American oil and associated gas outlook.

Oil production is forecasted to decline after a peak rate is achieved in 2015.

Solomon Natural Gas Services, a division of HSB Solomon Associates LLC (Solomon), today announced the release of its “North American Oil and Associated Gas Outlook” report. This report provides Solomon’s detailed oil production outlook for the major oil supply basins in the US and Western Canada, and a roll-up for North American oil and associated or solution gas production.

“Oil production is forecasted to decline after a peak rate is achieved in 2015. This drop is primarily due to a reduction in conventional oil production, including Alaska, Gulf of Mexico Deepwater and Western Canada,” said Lev Virine, Manager Gas Consulting at Solomon and report author. “Tight oil production from plays such as Permian, Eagle Ford and Bakken will drop in 2016–2018 before increasing later in the forecast period. However, this growth will not be enough to compensate for declining conventional oil production.”
