Solomon Natural Gas Services, formerly Ziff Energy, today announced the release of its “Impact of Low Oil Prices” report. The report analyzes the factors influencing North American oil production and price, including drilling, full-cycle oil costs, shut-in oil price, the size of the considerable low-cost resource in four key oil plays, the economics of oil sands projects, cash flow for growth plays, lower natural gas liquid revenues, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) project economics.

“Lower oil prices lead to substantially lower cash flow, which reduces funds for drilling and other capital investment,” said Simon Mauger, P.Geol., Director, Gas Supply and Economics at Solomon and author of the report. “The reduced prices lead to lower full-cycle costs, which reduce the break-even prices for oil projects.”

major North American oil growth plays, all oil and gas producing basins, and a summary of factors influencing North American oil production and price.
