Rystad Energy extends its Shale Intel report with water management and chemical market insight

June 12, 2018

Rystad Energy, the energy knowledge house, today announces the expansion of its recently launched Shale Intel report with two new components covering the US water management and stimulation chemicals markets.

This comes in addition to analyzing the mechanisms behind drilling and completion activity, frac services and US frac sand markets, and with that extending its coverage on supply and demand of key service segments of the US shale industry.

The new components cover the following:

  • Water Management Services: water supply and demand levels in all the main US basins and plays, pricing forecasts, detailed analysis of trends relating to sourcing, logistics, drilling and fracking, flowback, treatment, and disposal service.
  • Frac Chemicals Market: US stimulation chemicals market with details on key chemical categories such as the biocide, hydrochloric acid, gel, crosslinker and friction reducer, among others.

“We aim at providing a complete overview of the fundamentals for the oilfield service segments of the US shale. With this, we are now adding two more components, covering water management and frac chemicals markets, to our Shale Intel report. The recent growth in activity has more than doubled the water demand for fracking in the last two years; in fact, more water is being used in the Permian this year than was used in all of the US combined in 2016.  This is presenting a variety of new and compelling challenges and we believe our users will now be fully equipped to drive strategic decisions in this ever-changing market”, says Benjamin Stewart, Vice President of Shale Research at Rystad Energy.

Rystad Energy has become a key source for shale intelligence and offers a portfolio of both databases and reports together covering the full spectrum of the shale industry.
